WE ARE THE LORD'S HANDS AND FEET



#1


“Get away, infidel. Don’t touch me. I spit on you!

“Sir, please be still while I try to stop the bleeding.”

“With what…your fancy white scarf that must have cost a fortune?”

Quietly, “Yes”

“But I hate you.”

“Well, I don’t hate you. Here, sip this cool water and rest.”

(50 words)

***



#2 [True]

The dirty, barefoot man stumbled into Pastor Bob’s office that cold morning and fell into the empty chair. He was crying.

“May I help you?”

“I’m hungry and I need a job.

Bob took off his shoes and gave them to the stranger -- then led him to the food supply.

#3

She barely made it up the steps of the overloaded bus. Labor had begun. She grabbed the pole to try to hang on for the few blocks to the hospital.

Danny’s 8-year old eyes filled with tears as he struggled to stand with two crutches.

“Please…”he whispered, “Take my place.”

(50 words)

#4

Leslie stood at the window and watched the tail lights of the big moving van disappear into the grayness of the pouring rain. As she turned from the lonely sight, the doorbell rang.

“Welcome, neighbor.”

A dumpy little figure in a yellow raincoat clutched a basket of delicious smelling goodies.

#5

“Good afternoon, Ma’am. The two of us would like to give you some vital information and perhaps chat for a few minutes.”

Joyce recognized the sincere, though misguided spiel, but was gracious to the strangers.

“Please come in. I promise to listen to you, if you will return the favor.”

(50 words)











If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Good job of putting Biblical parables into modern times! I like all of them.
Janice Cartwright 25 Sep 2007
These leave me speechless, Linda, truly masterful for the project. I too choose the dumpy little neighbor with welcome batch of goodies. Oh, so lovely!
Allison Egley  25 Sep 2007
My favorites are 3 and 4, but especially the one about the 8 year old boy. Priceless. Great job.
Mo 24 Sep 2007
I especially liked the 3rd & 4th ones. So descriptive, all of them, I could really see them!
Verna Cole Mitchell  23 Sep 2007
Plot in 50 words? You did it excellently. The lady with the goodies was my favorite, but I liked them all.
Betty Castleberry 23 Sep 2007
These are all very well done. Loved the one about the pastor, especially.
Laurie Walker 22 Sep 2007
I especially like #4 - I'd be the woman bringing the goodies :)
Joanne Sher  22 Sep 2007
All five of these are amazing - I can't pick a favorite if I had to! Excellent.
Kristen Hester 22 Sep 2007
What wonderful lessons/messages you were able to fit into a few words. These are really, really excellent. God bless.
Linda Roth 21 Sep 2007
Linda, your stories hold great, yet tender, truths. That last one reminds me of a time such a scene happened in my life. I enjoyed them!
Deborah Porter  21 Sep 2007
Linda, these were beautiful. You brought a few quick (no time for more) tears to my eyes with a few of them--the first in particular. But that last one brought a smile to my face. The true story about Pastor Bob was very moving and challenging. Just goes to show you don't need loads of words to make a point. Well done! Love, Deb
Pat Guy  21 Sep 2007
Way to go Linda! Five mini-sermons that touch the heart! I don't know how you did it - but you did!
Jan Ackerson  21 Sep 2007
I loved, loved, loved #4--the dumpy little figure in yellow--you plopped a picture right into my head! You da bomb!
dub W 21 Sep 2007
Very well done. I especially like #2 - the true story about the pastor. Touched my heart. Thank you.
