Thanks For My Broken Leg

One beautiful summer while I worked for an adventure camp in the rugged White Mountains of New Hampshire, I received a thank-you note from a former camper. I taught mountaineering skills to our many senior high and college-age campers. I did receive a few thank-you notes from former campers but no note was ever like this one, the note stated;

Dear Tim,

Thanks for your help. When I arrived in New Hampshire I had a serious fear of heights but with your patient help during our days of rock climbing, I was able to overcome my fear of heights. When I returned to Michigan I had the boldness to sign up for a sky-diving class, unfortunately, on my first jump I broke my right leg.
Thanks
So & So

Well, if I help you overcome your fears, you may break a leg! Human help always has merely human results. These results can be rather broken and temporary. As a Biblical counselor I constantly tell myself that I am not helping anyone but rather serve as a guide to the real resources. I am just another traveler giving directions to the real helper. My fellow trekkers in this life need the eternal unchanging truth not my opinions. I have no good answers but I do know where to find the source of all truth and wisdom. The Bible, Godís Word, the Holy Spirit, prayer and a relationship with Christ are the only beautiful gifts that I can offer to my fellow voyagers.
