Brother Can You Spare A Hand? A Ten Commandments’ Tale

everyday people’s bravery, graciousness and heroism is inspirational. sometimes, they can literally lend a hand.

drama in the state of maine occurred when, according to reports, “a man who stumbled down the street while carrying his own severed arm..[and]… was saved by two public workers who saw him and happened to be trained in the use of tourniquets, authorities in maine said.” dailymail.com

the director of lewiston public works stated, “it had to be divine intervention because two of my best guys just happened to be there sanding sidewalks,’ ‘it couldn’t have been better guys for this kind of situation.’

divine intervention, however, can take many forms.

what appeared to be a singular moment of being in the “right place at the right time” is incorrect. the work up to the event must be appreciated. management had the foresight to institute a safety training program; employees paid attention during training; employees courageously acted; families raised these employees who became the “best [type of] guys.”

thus, in the world of divine intervention, human beings’ roles cannot be discounted. raising good children, employee planning and training, and employees exhibiting bravery can be the lead up to a miracle. thus, it is evident that the master of the universe’s gift to humanity of brains and abilities make us a helpful partner in his creation.

in sum, hopefully the worker will be able to recover and go on to live a fulfilling and prosperous life. likewise, this story can inspire others to be prepared for the future. there is always the possibility that you may be the “right person at the right time.”

be well!!
