how small, how great

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Philippians 4:9 (NIV)

What do you do when you're down and out?

When God seems to be putting you through the toughest time of your life, when your family's kicked you out because you refuse to join the fold to follow old ways, when you're hiding at the void deck because you want to avoid spot checks, when you're desparately trying to start anew but no employer seems to want you because of your previous drug conviction, when your wife left you for another man and still lies to you, when you're living off NTUC vouchers from social welfare, when you don't even have that 10cents to make a phone call...

How do you react when you meet a person going through this yet he's backboned enough not to ask for money or any other help? J tells me he's humbled this evening. Me too bro, me too.

Let's touch a life today with a listening ear, an assuring pat and heartfelt prayers.
