Passed Out

A young boy was riding his bike, he was probably about 11 or 12. He was having so much fun riding his dirt bike in the fields behind his parents house. It was something that he enjoyed so much. He had so much fun going over the bumps in the dirt and going on the trails nearby.

One day he happened to see something that he was not expecting. He saw a man laying down on the ground, he must of been in his late 30's or 40's. He saw a six pack of beer sitting next to him and he could tell this man probably passed out. He was worried about this man.

The feelings down in his gut were to go and get help, to do it right right away. This boy has always been a caring person. He couldn't just pass on by and let the man lay there. He had to do something, he needed to show the Lord that he was a caring individual. He wanted this man to get help, so he rode his bike as quickly as he could.

He knew a neighbor down the street who was a policeman. He knew that this was the right thing to do. He walked upto to the door and knocked. The man came to the door and he told him right away. He said that there was a man laying down in the dirt, he probably passed out and that there was a six pack of beer there.

The man told him that he would get an ambulance there right away. He knew he had done the right thing, he then rode his bike down as he was so excited and started to tell some of the other neighbors that he knew.

Deep down inside his heart was the passion and the love for others. It was this caring individual who wanted others to be safe. He even felt sadness when he saw someone who was in pain, the elderly, the sick. Anyone who suffered.

He knew that he did the right thing and he will always wonder what ever happened to that man. Will this man ever know who saved his life and if his life wasn't saved, at least he tried.

Jesus loves us so very much that he wants us to know that he cares deeply about each and every one of us. Sometimes we will run into situations during our lives where our assistance will be required of us. Some choose to ignore that, but others jump at the chance. We all need to be like Jesus and help those who are in need.
