Jump In the Hole

1 Thessalonians 5:11 NLT

Today’s scripture reminded me of a story I once heard. “A man is walking down the street, and falls into a hole. The hole is so deep, and the walls so slick, that he can’t get out. He sees a doctor walking down the street, and calls out to him. “Hey doc, I’ve fallen in this hole- can you help me out?” The doctor writes him a prescription, throws it in the hole, and keeps walking. Then the guy sees a priest walking down the street, and calls out, “Hey father, I’ve fallen in this hole, can you help me out?” The priest writes down a prayer on a piece of paper, throws it in the hole, and keeps walking. Then the guy sees one of his good friends. He calls out, “Hey friend, I’ve fallen in this hole, can you help me out?” His friend comes over, and jumps in the hole with him. The guy says, “What are you, crazy? Now we’re both in the hole!” His friend says, “Yes, but I’ve been here before, and I know the way out.” We all have different experiences in life, both bad and good; we have to use those times to help others. We should use our experiences to help others out of situations that we have already been in; this is a good way to love and encourage your neighbor. God Loves Ya 😉
