A cry for help went out from the man without a home. Someone handed him a bible and he wants to read it but doesn’t know how.
A cry for help went out from the woman who missed her children. Someone handed her a bible and she accepts it speaks of good things. In her pain she dulls herself with alcohol and can’t read it in her altered state.
A cry for help went out from the man who is dying of disease. Someone handed him a bible. He leaves the book on the bench since he has no glasses to read what it says.
Those crying for help need to see the living word in us when they can’t read the bible.
