A mechanic in Illinois is jump-starting frozen cars for free. Brad McKorical got the idea, saying that he just wanted to do some good in his community of Moline. One recipient of his generosity called him an angel.
An angel mechanic! That shows what matters to us and how we connect practical help with a divine source. But there’s a catch – he did it for free. It’s not so likely that a driver would refer to their tow truck driver as an angel if he over-charged her, which can happen. Brad did it to spread good.
This illuminates the new economy that is developing under the radar. People are reviving the neighborly tradition of helping each other. Time was, before money, when that was the norm. Nothing wrong with money, if it is used the way it was designed, as an effective measuring device, especially helpful when the numbers get big. Unfortunately, it’s become the thing itself. And, often, the reason people do what they do, rather than helping a neighbor.
Thanks Brad, for demonstrating the spirit that lives in us all and giving us a concrete example of how practical divine intervention can be!
