Good Samaritan

How cool is this story!

I read in this morning's paper about a woman named Marilyn Mock in the Dallas area who was attending a home auction to help her son buy a house. She happened to strike up a conversation with the former owner of the home, Tracy Orr (who had been foreclosed on) who was very distraught and was attending the auction.

Marilyn was so moved by Tracy's story that she decided to buy the house so that Tracy could return to it. Orr will make payments to her once the deal is finalized.

"She needed help. That was it," Mock said. "I just happened to be there, and anybody else would have done the same thing."

Not everybody would have done the same thing. This is pretty remarkable. Thanks for being a great example Marilyn! Read the story here.

Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to everyone who had need.
Acts 2:43-45
