Must Have It!

My wife and I saw a barge pull over to the side of the Ohio River near our house. We walked over closer to see what the occasion was, since the boats don’t usually stop here.

We observed a man lower a small boat into the water. Then he put a bicycle into the boat, got in the boat himself and started paddling to the shore.

The shore was muddy, so he had difficulty getting out of the boat. He fell and got his hands and knees muddy. After securing the small boat, he got the bike out of the boat and started pushing it up the river bank.

I had gone down to meet him, and asked if he needed any help. He thanked me, but said that all he needed was directions to the nearest convenience store. It turned out that he was on a beer run for the crew!

As I watched him peddle away, I thought that it seemed like a lot of trouble just to get some beer.

I hope that Christian people show the same diligence and determination in getting to church to take communion on Sunday!

“…Do this in remembrance of me.”—Luke 22:19.
