THE

 

BRICK 

A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street,

going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids darting out

 from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something.
 As his car passed, no children appeared Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag's side door!
 He slammed on the brakes and backed the Jag back to the spot where the brick had been thrown.
 The angry driver then jumped out of the car, grabbed the nearest kid and
 pushed him up against a parked car shouting, "What was that all about and who are you?
 Just what the heck are you doing? That's a new car   and that brick you threw is
 going to cost a lot of money. Why did you do it?" The young boy was apologetic
 "Please, mister...please, I'm sorry but I didn't know what else to do,"
 he pleaded.  "I threw the brick because no one else would stop..."
 With tears dripping down his face and off his chin, the youth pointed to a
 spot just around a parked car. "It's my brother," he said.
 "He rolled off the curb and fell out of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up."
 Now sobbing, the boy asked the stunned executive,
 "Would you please help me get him back into his
wheelchair? He's hurt and he's too heavy for me."
 Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling
 lump in his throat He hurriedly lifted the handicapped boy back into
 the wheelchair, then took out a linen handkerchief and dabbed at the
 fresh scrapes and cuts. A quick look told him everything was going to be okay..
 "Thank you and may God bless you," the grateful child told the stranger.
 Too shook up for words, the man simply watched the boy push his wheelchair-bound brother down the
 sidewalk toward their home It was a long, slow walk back to the Jaguar.
 The damage was very noticeable, but the driver never bothered to repair the dented side
 door. He kept the dent there to remind him of this message "Don't go through life so fast that someone
 has to throw a brick at you to get your attention!"
 God whispers in our souls and speaks to our hearts.
 Sometimes when we don't have time to listen,
 He has to throw a brick at us.  It's our choice to listen or not.
 Thought for the Day:
 If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
 If He had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
 He sends you flowers every spring.
 He sends you a sunrise every morning.
 Face it, friend - He is crazy about you!
