Do Not Vanish God

I’m sure, given a blame-everyone-help-no one mentality, that is more than creeping these days, the linked story below will raise alarm…How could you help this man? Do you realize how many Good Samaritans get murdered or rape…usually both in reverse order? Why isn’t he responsible? Why doesn’t he do something for himself. Why doesn’t he pull himself up by his own bootstraps?

[With no cognition that some people lack bootstraps and boots….hmmmm]

Heard it, you have too I wager. But. Hopefully when we read this story, we’ll think about ourselves and those in our life, and yes, on the edges, and maybe to meet for the first time tomorrow and embody this: MAY MY WILLINGNESS TO UNDERSTAND BE STRONGER THAN MY NEED TO JUDGE….

After reading this…please do even if you’ve seen it before. Hold a mirror and answer, “How am I?” And then. Turn the mirror into a window and look beyond yourself to see how you can bring a smile and not a smirk, how you can make for the good in someone. Perhaps someone you meet on an airplane, or in a fishing boat, or having coffee in a hotel lobby. Wherever. You helping is God at work. You not helping is vanishing God for the other in that moment.

Please. To me as well as you. Don’t vanish God!


About Mark H Miller

Diane and I live in Leander, Texas. This past June 17, 2015 I celebrated the 49th anniversary of my ordination. We returned to Texas after three years in Washington, during which I served as interim minister in Bellevue/Eastgate and Mercer Island. Am planning to begin a 5th novel that will have my protagonist, Tricia Gleason, serve a year in licensed ministry in Snoqualmie, Washington. The novel, "The Lemon Drop Didn't Melt," will find Tricia wrestling with ministry challenges. None of which more daunting than someone wanting her breathing to stop. All the published novels are available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle under Mark Henry Miller. A primary goal in our return to Texas is to make sure grandchildren get lots of attention--here and in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Traveling is definitely an activity that will not slow down. With that, of course, fishing will happen. To that the t-shirt is apt, "I fish; therefore I am." In addition to novels, the book of Blogs, "Voice Of My Heart," is also available on Amazon.
