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 

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 

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 

Send this to every

'beautiful person'

you wish to bless.

God didn't promise 
days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun 
without rain, but

He did promise strength for the 
day, comfort for the tears, and light for the 

Read this line very 
slowly and let it sink 

If God brings you to it,

He will bring you through it.
