The picture and the verse both stem from my weekend. On Saturday, men from my church went out in 37* weather (that was the high that day), to help an elderly lady by giving her a new roof. They encountered a few unexpected problems along the way that added many extra hours of work to the project. Through it all, their attitudes remained upbeat and positive and they kept on working, despite the fact that it was freezing cold.
Sunday at our church was Youth Sunday, which meant that our youth group basically ran the service – complete with the Youth Pastor preaching that day. His sermon was based out of James 2. As soon as he read the scriptures, all I could think about were those men the day before working so hard for no other reason than to take care of, love on, and bless this elderly lady who was in need of a better roof on her home. I love when I can see people’s faith in action!
