Greg Ballog was on his way to work when he spotted a woman walking down the road. As he gets closer, he recognizes her as Tina, the woman who regularly makes his pizzas at a local pizzeria. He pulled over to ask if she would like a ride because the pizza shop is over two miles away. She recognized him and got in, and as they drove, he learned something that he never expected to hear.
She had started the job about seven months ago, walking four miles each day for work. It was an exhausting trek to make each day, and he could tell that it had been taking its toll by the way she talked.
Yeah, but what can you do Greg? I need the job… life doesn’t stop. So I make it work. I used to have a bike, but it broke and I don’t have another one.”
He dropped her off at work and as soon as she was out of the car, he called his wife. He told her the story, and amazingly, his wife said what he had been thinking all along.
Greg, we are getting that lady a bike!”
He bought a bike and drove to her pizza shop, taking this picture after giving it to her. She didn’t know what to say, but she was incredibly thankful. Greg knew just how to thank her and has message for everyone else.
We may be getting this for you, but you have given more to me today than you know. I cannot express enough… GET TO KNOW PEOPLE! Ask questions, ask about their struggles, ask what you can pray for. God has called us to serve and love your neighbor as you love yourself. If people truly truly truly truly understood that and did that a lot of the crap that is going on in this world wouldn’t be going on. There are people in need and they are in your own backyard. All you have to do is step out of “Your Circle.”
