My Buddy William

July 5, 2012


Our Daily Bread is hosted by Les Lamborn


READ: 1 Corinthians 12:18-27
The members should have the same care for one another. ó1 Corinthians 12:25

As we got off the bus at a home for mentally and physically challenged children in Copse, Jamaica, I didnít expect to find a football player. While the teen choir and the other adult chaperones dispersed to find kids to hug, love, and play with, I came upon a young man named William.

Iím not sure what Williamís medical diagnosis was, but he looked like he probably had cerebral palsy. I had grabbed a football before getting off the bus, so I tossed it gently to William, who dropped it.

But when I picked it up and put it into his hands, he slowly manipulated it until he had it just how he wanted it. Then, leaning back against a railing for balance, William tossed a perfect spiral. For the next 45 minutes, we played toss and catchóhe tossed, I caught. William laughed and laughedóand stole my heart. On that day he had as much impact on me, Iím sure, as I did on him. He taught me that we are all needed as a part of Christís body, the church (1 Cor. 12:20-25).

People often dismiss others who are different from themselves. But it is the Williams of the world who teach us that joy can come when we accept others and respond in compassion. Is there a William in your world who needs you to be his buddy? óDave Branon

Lord, help us to see how much we need each other
in our Christian walk. May we show Your love
to others who are different than us. Give us an
open heart to learn. Amen.

We need one another in order to be who God wants us to be.
