Arm Lost in Car Accident

When I was in my early twenties, I remember a young man who lived a very wildlife. One day he was intoxicated and driving his car down a two-lane highway. It was a hot summer day and he had the windows open and his left arm was sticking out the window on the driver’s side. Because of the influence of the alcohol his car was weaving. When he approached an oncoming car he side-swiped it and the impact took his arm off above his elbow. His life was spared but he had to live the rest of his life with the consequences of not having the use of a left arm and hand. It is true that if we have  trusted Jesus as our Lord and Saviour (John 14:6) He will forgive us of any sin we have committed (I John 1:9) but we may have to live with some consequences (Lou Nicholes - Missionary/Author)
