the pastor at church told a story which i find inspiring today and i'd like to share with you guys.
he told us the story of a few people who became a blessing for others around them.
the first person i'm retelling is Jack Eckerd, an owner of a very successful drugstore chain.
he didn't know God at first, but after he tried going to church and was "touched" , his life changes.
he started living in God's ways and refuses to have porn magazines being sold at his store,
he asked his friends to follow but they laughed. because selling those magazines give a really big profit.
but Jack is persistent and choose to follow God's ways than riches.
but then his drugstores became even more successful because mothers don't worry anymore to bring their
children and gave him even more visitors.after that not little of other stores followed his steps.
now the second story is about a man with a different situation. Bai Fang Li isn't a rich man,
he was a pedicab (becak) driver in Tianjin. one day he saw a child finding food in the trash for his younger siblings.
that kid was only 6. he then brought the kid to an orphanage, but the orphanage refuses to take them in
saying the place is full and they can't pay the living for those kids because no one contributes for them.
he then said that he will contribute every month to the orphanage and tried to make them change their minds.
after that, he spent his life contributing until his death at 93 years old, and if we calculate all his donations ,
it reaches about RMB 350.000 ( Rp 455 million).
actually there were a lot of other stories the pastor told, but i hope these stories are enough to inspire you
