Are You Ready to Cry? – Sermon Illustration


Are You Ready to Cry?

Well know writer, Leo Buscaglia, shared that he had been asked to serve as a judge in a contest whose aim was to locate the child in the area that was deemed as the most caring child.

The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,

'Nothing, I just helped him cry'

When I read this little story, it prompted me to ask myself a question. I now ask you that same question, "Do you know someone you need to go cry with?"

We LOVE you so.. how about liking us on Facebook?..

    What a touching story of a child with the compassion of our Lord. It reminded me of the day I cried so hard with my sister who was dieing of cancer,after much prayer,begging God and releasing faith for her healing,I finally new the Lord was calling her home.Istill miss her,but the cry was a release of letting go and letting and receiving Gods will.
