Scripture Reading:- Acts 16:1-40
Topic:- One Good Turn Deserves Another 
Text:- Acts 16:28
As I was about to enter my house, I got a call that Jude my son has been involved in an accident and has been rushed to the hospital. Since I didn’t have transport, I ran all the way to the hospital and I met my daughter crying.
“Where is my son? Where is he?”
I barked at the Nurse. The Doctor, a tall handsome young man came out. “Mr Mike, your son is in good condition. He lost a lot of blood though but a good Samaritan woman helped donate hers”
As he was still talking, the Woman I gave #150 came out, crying and massaging her hands with cotton wool. “She brought her child here for treatment but the child died. She was crying when your son was brought in a stretcher and had lost so much blood. We had run out of blood in the bank and so when I asked the Nurse to call you, it’s because we needed blood.
She overheard our discourse and offered to help even when she is mourning her daughter who just died, I have never seen such kindness in my entire life, this just restored my faith in God again.”
I held the woman close to me and hugged her tightly, I hugged her and wouldn’t let go, both of us were crying as we were the only ones that understood the whole scenario.
The Doctor didn’t collect a dime from us as he tagged what happened a “Miracle” and it would be unfair to take money from us, money I didn’t even have.
My son was discharged two weeks later and the Woman is now living with me and the kids, at least they need a mother now. I have been called back at my place of work, this time with an ever bigger pay packet.
Susan is the Angel God sent to me to change my situation and I almost lost that chance because of my predicament.
She has so far been excellent with the kids and everything in my life has turned around for good!
1. Oh Lord my God, help me to be an helping hand to others henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Happy Lord’s Day!
