  2. 2. Unforgettable Unforgettable is the only word I can think of to describe the experience I am about to share with you. It impressed and convicted me, and I’m sure it will do the same for you. Paul Scott was a frail man when I came to know him. But this had not always been the case. He had served his country valiantly during World War II flying B-29’s “over the hump” in Burma. Many years of his life had been dedicated to serving the Lord’s church as an elder. In this capacity he served with courage and distinction. But when I came to know him, his physical circumstance had somewhat changed. His body was wracked with disease. Fed through a tube, he spent the majority of his time confined to a bed. During this time of physical deterioration and almost unbearable pain, his loving family tenderly cared for him and offered him every possible service. But there is a sense in which he served us— all of us. His life was not only a lesson of how to live, but also how to die. And now for the particular item I want to share with you. Two weeks before Paul’s death, an elder of the church paid a visit to the Scott home. Paul’s wife, Dorothy, met him at the door and cordially invited him in. To his surprise, he discovered that he had happened in on a Bible study being conducted by brother Scott FROM HIS DEATHBED. What a lesson! What an opportunity for an excuse! “Oh, I can’t study with anyone. I’m sick and dying!” But, no Sir! No such words came from Paul’s lips. He did what he could and in the doing taught us the absurdity of our excuses. Maybe we’re the sick ones. I do know one thing, no excuse will ever seem very important to me anymore. Oh, if only we would all do what we could. Terry Bell via Boulder, CO Congratulations Congratulations to Mark & Mikki Gilliland on the birth of their son, Tyler “Kade,” on Aug. 18.
