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.
