Paul Harvey reported on his noon news of a 73-year-old man who was pinned beneath his farm tractor for four days and nights in driving rain and a terrible storm. Concerned friends went to see about him just in time. He is going to live, but will lose a leg just below the knee.
Several newspapers have picked up on this little story and centered upon the amazing fact that a 73-year-old man could live after such an ordeal. Yes, all of that is amazing, but a more amazing fact is what caused his friends to go see about him. One friend gave as the reason for this visit that “he missed prayer meeting Wednesday night.” That’s all? YES! He just missed one service and his friends went to check on him. See you Wednesday evening … and Sunday evening?
