I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. - Revelation 3:8 (NIV)
I remember the sound of the gravel under my tires as I drove up the lane to visit my friend Willy. I can still see him waving from his porch — one arm extended and the other leaning on his cane. “What took you so long?” he’d ask.
My small actions canmake a huge difference in someone’s life of faith.
