Wheelchairs.

When Jesus walked this earth wheelchairs had not been invented. The lame either stayed in their beds or laid on the floor in poverty.

You’ll remember the story of the lame man whose friends brought him down, bed and all, through the roof of a house to meet Jesus.

When Jesus met the lame, He did not shout at them as if they were deaf, or ignored them and spoke to those accompanying them instead.

Why is it then when we meet people in wheelchairs, some of us speak very loudly at them, or ignore them completely as if they’ve lost the ability to think and talk for themselves, and we speak to the person behind the wheelchair rather than the one in it.

A little dignity to wheelchair users, and other sick people, would not go amiss.

  1. I agree. I think our culture today is more geared towards judging people rather then looking at the disabled with a lovable spirit like Jesus did. Jesus loves them just as much as everyone else and they deserve the same amount of respect and love.

    p.s. thanks for the bday wishes.
