Listen to the Wisper or Wait for the Brick

A young and successful executive was travelling down a neighbourhood
street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar.
He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars. As his
car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the
Jaguar's side door! He slammed on the brakes, jumped out of the car,
grabbed the kid who was standing there and pushed him against a parked
car shouting,
"What do you think you are doing, boy?" 
Building up a head of steam he went on, "That's a new car and that
brick you threw is going to cost a lot of money. Why did you do it?"
"Please sir, please. I'm sorry, I didn't know what else to do,"
pleaded the youngster.
"I threw the brick because no one else would stop..." 
Tears were dripping down the boy's chin as he pointed around the parked car. 
"It's my brother, sir," he said. "He rolled off the curb and fell out
of his wheelchair and I can't lift him up."
Sobbing, the boy asked the executive, "Would you please help me get
him back into his wheelchair, sir? He's hurt and he's too heavy for
me."
Moved beyond words, the driver tried to swallow the rapidly swelling
lump in his throat .He lifted the young man back into the wheelchair
and took out his handkerchief and wiped the scrapes and cuts, checking
to see that everything was going to be okay.
"Thank you and may God bless you, sir," the grateful child said to
him. The man then watched the little boy push his brother toward their
home.
It was a long walk back to his Jaguar...a long slow walk. 
He never did repair the side door. 
He kept the dent to remind him not to go through life so fast that
someone has to throw a brick at you to get your attention.
Sometimes when you don't have time to listen, God has to throw a brick at you. 
It's your choice: 
Listen to the whisper... or wait for the brick.
