Do you ever feel like all you ever hear is bad news? Sometimes it makes it seem as though there’s nothing but hate left in the world. That’s what makes Brittany McKee’s Facebook post so moving. The Georgia woman tells of an older lady who fainted while shopping. A Walmart employee supported her, while folks from all different backgrounds came together to help. And it’s a powerful reminder that love is still very much alive.
Brittany McKee is a registered nurse. And she just so happened to be shopping at Walmart when a woman collapsed. But it wasn’t just Brittany who was in the right place at the right time to help. God had his angels all over the store!
Walmart Employee Supported Woman
Brittany shared the story on Facebook, saying:
“Following my appointment this morning to check on our growing baby boy, my husband and I stopped at Walmart in Evans to pick up a couple of things. As we were walking to the refrigerated section, we noticed a woman who had passed out and fallen on the floor.
Being a registered nurse, my first instinct was of course to stop, assess, and be there to help. She had regained orientation, but did say she was on blood thinners and felt dizzy. So I stayed with her, along with her daughter and the Walmart personnel, until the ambulance came and tried to encourage her to stay seated.
The Walmart staff was amazing. They kept in contact with dispatch as we waited on the bus to arrive.
Then there was Jason.
I don’t know his last name, but this man, no questions asked got down on the floor with this woman and supported her back so she could lean against him. He literally got down on the floor to serve her, not because he was asked to do it, he wasn’t, but because he wanted to.
Brittany’s Post Goes On…
The media lately shows our country divided, filled with hate and racial tension, but this right here was one human being loving and serving another without condition of race or obligation. While we waited, another man stopped, knelt down and prayed over this woman. What I experienced today was love, kindness, and serving.
We are human beings, each and every one of us regardless of how much pigmentation our skin has or doesn’t have. I couldn’t help but share because the media doesn’t seem to report this… the unity and the positive that occurs. This right here is real life, this is what it’s all about, not hate.”
Love Thy Neighbor
This is exactly how Jesus served. He didn’t see gender, race, social status or any of the other distinctions the world can focus on.
In Luke 10:25-37, a man asks Jesus, if he is to love his neighbor as himself, then who falls under the term neighbor? He was hoping to get Jesus to apply the world’s standards, expecting him to point out those he didn’t have to bother loving.
Instead, Jesus tells the Parable of the Good Samaritan, showing how we are to serve anyone we encounter in need. Jesus loves each and every one of us, and calls us to do the same. What a beautiful picture of the body of Christ Brittany witnessed that day!
