As a New York skyscraper went up, hundreds paused daily to glance up at it. One day they watched a ponderous metal beam go up to take its place in the steel skeleton. As the girder came near, a workman leaned out from the sixteenth floor to seize it. The spectators gasped as he lost his balance and fell. Desperately, he clutched the girder’s end with arms and legs.
The ground crew stopped the hoisting engine, but the man’s weight at one end began to tilt the beam to a vertical position, which would eventually cause him to lose his grip and fall to his death.
With swift decision, another worker on the same floor, seeing his friend’s predicament, leaped through space and landed on the other end, where his weight leveled the beam. Amid the applause of the crowd, both men were safely lowered to the street.
Every day people around us lose their balance on moral and spiritual questions – they consider having an affair with a co-worker, taking company funds, lying to close a deal, toying with drugs and alcohol.
Wrong decisions will hurt them and their families for years and could cost them their souls in Eternity. They need friends who are interested in helping them keep their balance, by leading exemplary lives, by sacrificial living, by speaking a word for Christ. Here on this earth, no one will applaud, but it will be worth it all when we receive the approval of the Master. (1 Corinthians 4:5)
Today! Someone needs you to be the hands and feet of Jesus!
