This story appeared in the May 10, 2010, edition of the "Turning Point Daily Devotional": Recently a young man in suburban Chicago tried to escape during his trial, as he'd seen done many times on television.

Dwight L. Moody told this story: “A minister was one day moving his library upstairs. As he was going up with a load of books, his little boy came in, very anxious to help his father.

He couldn’t manage to carry it up. It was too big. So he sat down and cried.
