It was a doubles exhibition tennis match of world champions, but that didn’t stop Rafael Nadal from putting the brakes on when he saw a distressed mother in the crowd.

Nadal was about to serve in to Carlos Moya and John McEnroe during their game in Manacor, Mallorca when he saw a crying woman gesturing to a steward up in the stands.

When heads started to turn, the arena realized that she was a mother looking for her lost child who had wandered away during the match.

The audience searched the seats until they found little Clara crying a ways away from her mother.

When the woman scooped up her weeping daughter, the crowd rose to tumultuous applause and play resumed.

Rafael Nadal stops match against John McEnroe so …

The clay-court legend was playing an exhibition match against the American on his home island of Majorca when he showed his softer side Rafael Nadal dramatically …

Jesus told a parable in Luke 15:1-7 to judgmental scribes and Pharisees about a man who has one hundred sheep, yet is willing to leave ninety-nine of them to pursue the one that leaves the fold. Just as Rafael Nadal stopped play and the whole crowd turned it’s interest away from the match to help find a missing girl, God and all of heaven has is more concerned with the salvation of sinners. The Lord and His angels find more joy in one of His creation coming to repentance and saving faith in Him than in anyone who already knows Him.

Are there any lost sheep around you today that the Lord might want to use you to help bring back into the fold, just as He once did with you?

Child Hit by Driver in Reading & Tragedy Outside Las Vegas McDonald’s

Child Hit by Driver in Reading
Families in part of the city of Reading are asking that the City Council add warning signs and speed bumps where their children play. Their calls are even louder after Monday, when a girl was hit by a car in the neighborhood.

Eight-year old Genavie Baez was struck on Monday evening near Franklin and Orange streets in Reading. The child was on her bike when she was hit.

“She went out a little bit (on her bike) because there was a black truck parked there. She turned, she looked, there was no car, so she went with her bike, and that lady (the driver) just came out of nowhere,” said the girl’s mother, Kaira Acevedo.

Acevedo says her daughter suffered four fractures in her right leg, and cuts and bruises on other parts of her body.

Just a week earlier, Acevedo says she and other families near 10th and Cherry streets presented City Council with a petition to make the area safer. Councilwoman Marcia Goodman-Hinnershitz says she hopes the families can meet with the council and the administration soon, and believes the families’ requests are reasonable.

There are laws in place in our society to help us, not to hurt us. God is the one who places governing authorities above us, and unless those governing authorities put laws into effect that are against the word of God, we are to obey the laws of the land. This includes traffic laws, probably the most commonly broken of any.

“For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience.” (Rom. 13:3-5, ESV)

Doing something as simple as stopping at a stop sign or driving the speed limit could spare someone’s life.

Tragedy Outside Las Vegas McDonald’s
A 31-year old man was shot and killed outside a Las Vegas McDonald’s for not holding a door open for a woman.

“It’s horrible. I want my dad back and you took him away from me!” said the murder victim’s daughter, Miniya Sampson. Sampson says her father’s best friend witnessed the shooting.

The friend told Sampson that her father got into an argument with a woman that was upset that a door into the McDonald’s was not held open for her, late on Saturday night. The woman then notified a man she was with, who in turn pulled out a gun and shot Robinson. The murderer is still at large.

Gun violence is becoming so common in America, that it appears to be not the last and most insensible way to end a conflict, but now one of the most common and quickly considered by a certain sub-culture in our society.

Isn’t it amazing how the devil operates. He takes the smallest, most seemingly insignificant situation, like a door not being opened, and within minutes, someone’s life is over. Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10, ESV)

Let’s remember that even when we are wronged by someone that “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Eph. 6:12, ESV)

People are not the problem, Satan is.
