“Alms!” “Alms!” “Alms for the poor!”
D.T Niles once said, “Christianity is one beggar telling another beggar where to find bread.” His words remind me of the moment Peter and John arrived at the Temple in Jerusalem at the same time someone laid a disabled man at the gate called Beautiful. The man was there to beg for food and money (Acts 3:1-26).
Give credit to the two apostles for stopping long enough to notice the lame man. Others walked right by and said nothing. “Silver and gold I do not have,” said Peter, “but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”
I call that a beautiful miracle.
