From Dorothy H,
Bohn Fawkes was a B17 pilot in WW2 when on one mission he sustained flak from Nazi anti-aircraft guns. Even though his fuel tanks were hit, the plane did not explode, and the following morning Fawkes asked his commanding officer for the German shell, he wanted to keep it as a souvenir.. He was told that not just one but eleven shells had been found in the fuel tank, none had exploded!
When the technicians opened the missiles they found they didnt contain explosive charges. They were clean and harmless. All except one was empty. The exception contained a carefully rolled piece of paper. On it a message was scrawled in the Czech language.It was translated: "This is all we can do for you now - using Jewish slave labour is never a good idea"!
A courageous assembly line worker was disarming bombs and scribbling the note. He couldnt end the war, but he could do something. And he did. God can do big things with small actions. Just like He did with a towering giant. Small stones look futile to topple Goliath. The widows mite seemed nothing compared to the tithes of the wealthy, but God sees it all, including the motive of the heart, and Jesus used them in His day to inspire us in ours. Often people ask can any good come from such a catastrophic act of hate, such as seen in the Holocaust, but those lost in the embers still hold a legacy of hope to spur us on to make small changes and sow seeds of hope for Israel and the Jewish people even now.
