1 John 3:18

Becky and I were sitting on the micro together. It was a typical ride.

And then the man behind us talked to us.

We were Americans.

The back of her shirt read “construyendo”—building—and he was hoping we could build him a house.

He and his wife needed a house. So many need houses.

I didn’t know what to do. But I don’t think I did the right thing.

All I did was explain the shirt—“construyendo para eternidad.”

And then it was a long ride. My heart broke—for him, for mexico, for the needs, and for my affluence.

I asked him his name. Horatio. His wife’s name is Anita.

I will pray for you and your wife I told him—and for a house.

He will provide. My God is a God of provision.

Yet I said nothing more and I did nothing. I just sat there.

“Dear brothers let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:18
