The late Steve Allen told about a lady named Liz who had been hurt in an automobile accident. A lawyer came to visit her and said, "I've come to assist you in getting damages." Liz replied, "I got all the damages I want. What I need is repairs."
This is true of many hurting people we come in contact with every day. The
church in general, and we in particular, need to assist people in making
repairs to their lives.
