A recent story on the radio was about a woman trying to save her dog who had fallen into an icy lake. Every time the dog tried to get out, the ice broke and the pooch was back in frigid water again. In her love for the dog, she carefully slid out over the frozen water to help but fell in herself and was in the same predicament along with her still struggling dog. Then her husband reminded her that the water was not so deep and she could just stand up.

Sometimes the people we help have gotten into trouble helping their loved ones. Let us encourage others to stand on the solid ground
that is God.
