1 Kings 17:7-16
There is a story told of Mahatma Gandhi getting on a train just as the train starts to pull away from the station. As he jumps onto the train, one of his sandals falls off onto the tracks. Gandhi quickly slips off the other sandal and lets it fall onto the tracks too. Someone observed his gesture and asks, "Why did you do that?" Gandhi replied, "Now someone will have a whole pair of shoes to wear." When people see our compassion, observe our selflessness and hear our words, may they glorify our heavenly Father.
