Show Me Your Hands - 11/20/2009

Today's Mental Image:

The Story Written On Your Hands

What will we have to show?

Brother Bustin's book tells of a young girl who was lying on her death bed.  Her strength had ebbed away while caring for a loving father and a group of motherless little brothers and sister.  "What will I say," said she, "when I see Jesus?  What have I done for Him?"  A kind neighbor said, "Honey, you don't have to say a word.  Just show Him your hands."  There they lay on the coverlet, bony, rough and withered from loving service to her loved ones.  Will our hands be sufficient answer to His questioning look on that great day?
