2 Chronicles 25:2: Amaziah did what was pleasing in the Lord’s sight.
Mark and his mother drove down the street, heading for home. Suddenly, Mark saw a boy he knew from school walking along. “Give him a ride, Mom,” he said.
“Who is he?” his mother asked.
“A kid from school.”
Mark’s mother stopped and they offered the boy a ride. He said with a smile, “Thanks. It’s a long walk home.”
“I forget your name,” Mark said to him.
The boy responded, “Jerry Cranmer. I live up on Livingston Street.”
In a few minutes, Mark’s mother drove into one of the tougher sections of town. They soon found Jerry’s house. The lawn was burned out. Two old rusty cars sat in the front year. And the house looked like it was falling down. Mark said to Jerry, “See you in school.”
When Jerry had gone, Mark said to his mother, “He’s a nice guy. I should get to know him better.”
