I Met A Drug Addict

I met a drug addict yesterday. He shared a lot to me about his struggles. Presently, he is considered an escapee from a drug rehabilitation center. His wife, who works overseas, does not communicate to him. They got 4 children. He is jobless and could not function normally. He depends on the doleouts of his wife and relatives for his medication and his childrens' support. Interesting thing is he knows a lot about the Bible and can quote Scriptures by memory! Indeed, our life's transformation springs not from thought or knowledge alone. Repentance can prepare us for positive action and "readiness for responsibility." I prayed for him before we parted ways. Ultimately, it's God who will lead him the way to true rehabilitation.
