Wade’s Wednesday

Who is My Neighbor

His phone rang in church by accident during prayers. The Pastor and the worshippers scolded him after church for interrupting the silence. (And his wife kept on lecturing on his carelessness all the way home.)

You could see the shame, embarrassment and humiliation on his face as he walked out of the church. He never stepped foot in the church ever again.

That night he went to a bar and, still nervous over his experience in church, accidentally spilled his drink. The waiter apologized and gave him a napkin to clean himself up. The waiter also mopped the floor and offered him a complementary drink. He has never stopped going to that bar since.

You can make a difference by how you treat people. Cheer people on and don’t put them off. Make things easy and not difficult for them.

If you cannot be a pencil to write anyone’s happiness, then try to be a nice eraser to remove their sadness.
