This morning after church, I offered to water the newly planted dogwoods out in front of the church. (I am new at that church but I feel as if I am home.) I new friend helped me and found a lemonade pitcher to use and I took it to the garden hose on the side of the church house. I opened the spigot and waited for the water to fill the hose. Out came just a small stream of water; this was going to take a while. My next thought was, “low water pressure.” But that can’t be…not here…low water pressure in Anderson? So I looked for kinks in the hose. There were two or three…not bad. Nothing serious. I worked out the kinks and there came the water, “good measure… running over.”
Sometimes that’s all it takes: a kind word, a gesture, a larger tip than usual, a hug. Sometimes our fellow man just needs a few kinks worked out and they are ‘good to go.’
Sometimes, that’s all Jesus asks of us. Nothing major. Just a few kinks…that’s all.
