The Least of these

Last night I was cutting grass and looked across the yard. I saw the twins at the swing set one climbed up and in the bumblebee swing and the other pushed her and pushed her till she was swinging through the air. The pushing sister then got on the old flat swing on her tummy so she could push herself with her feet. Their red hair was glowing in the setting sun and my heart was smiling knowing that instead of fighting for the favorite swing, one was willing to help the other and settle for the least. I wanted to get off the mower and hug them, but knew if I did, I’d interrupt the moment. I wondered for a moment if God smiles the way I did when one of His children helps another and is wiling to take the least. Grass cutting never felt so good!
