The Help

“Speaking the truth in love, let us grow up into Him who is the head”  (Ephesians 4:15 )  Have you seen the movie “The Help”?  Holly and I went on Friday.  It is an inspiring story of black maids in the 1960’s South who were willing to speak about their experiences despite the negative reaction that was sure to come from such honesty.  Abelene, the main character, finally found courage to do what was right as she listened to a sermon.  (Lord, make me such a preacher!)  She reminded me of Esther–moving forward on moral certainty alone, having no other hope than the help of God.  Have you reached the point where you are willing to do the same?   As you enter the presence of the King, are you prepared to speak the truth and ask for the highest good, without fear of what others will do or say?   Father, make us like Abelene.  Like Esther.  Like Jesus.  I will see you in a few hours at worship.  My love to you, dear friend.  Don
