A Prison Surprise
By Rick Boxx
December 23, 2011

As I began speaking to a group of prisoners I noticed someone on the front row who looked like someone from my church. Because I was in a prison, surely I was mistaken, I thought.


At break time I discovered that, indeed, it was him. I asked if there was someway we could serve his family while he was in prison. I was pleased by his response.

 

"Our church has been great. They send someone every week to care for my kids so my wife can get out. It's far better than most of the guys in here have experienced."

 

Hebrews 13:3 teaches, "Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering."
