Romans 13:8Recommended Reading
Sam Rayburn served nearly a half-century in the U.S. House of Representatives and became one of the most powerful men in the world, but he never outgrew his friends. One night, a friend's daughter passed away. Early the next morning the man heard a knock on his door, and when he opened it, Mr. Rayburn stood outside. "I just came by to see what I could do to help," said Rayburn. The man said nothing could be done.
"Well," Mr. Rayburn said, "have you had your coffee this morning?" While Rayburn was working in the kitchen, the man came in and said, "Mr. Speaker, I thought you were supposed to be having breakfast at the White House this morning.""Well, I was," Rayburn said, "but I called the President and told him I had a friend who was in trouble, and I couldn't come."Sometime during this fall season someone will need your support and fellowship. A friend in trouble is the most important person in the world; and fellowship is the funnel through which our love flows to others. Do you have a friend in need today?Blest be the tie that binds our hearts in Christian love. The fellowship of kindred minds is like to that above.
