Service: Not throwin' no rocks in nobody's path

I recently heard a story from a parishioner who attended an elderly person's funeral.  When she spoke to another elderly friend of the deceased, the woman said, "Well, now, she was never throwin' no rocks in my path."  In the moment, I laughed, but the phrase stuck with me. 

We don't always have the ability to help someone actively.  But we can always refrain from throwing rocks in their way.  Another way of being kind and treating people in a Christ-like way.  I'd be proud if someone said that of me some day.  Sometimes not doing is as important as doing.
