Touch One


Just finished Touch One by Chris Shimel.
It's a powerful and heart-touching story, reminding us that each individual is precious in the eyes of God. Ministry to the hurting individual is just as important (even more) than ministry to the masses.
Shimel writes:
If you are too busy to help one person, then you are way too busy. If you are too busy to touch the one you may meet along the way -- the one who may come as an interruption to your objectives and your schedule -- then you have ceased to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

With Jesus, the one in need always took precedence over any objective He pursued, whether it was a location, an appointment or a ministry. (p. 135)
