Many times in today’s society, people will talk the talk, but they will not walk the walk. Many people do not have the courage, selflessness or character to go the extra mile for others.
Houston Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson is not someone who lacks these qualities.
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, with the entire city of Houston still recovering and many people affiliated with the Texans organization doing the same, Deshaun Watson went out of his way to help somebody.
This past week, Watson and his teammates found out about two women who work for the Texans who lost everything they had to Hurricane Harvey. They lost their homes, clothes, money, etc.,
They still showed up for work to help the players; To feed them, give them nutrition and energy. Even when they had nothing, they worked to help Watson and the Texans.
Watson took notice of this, and he decided to take action to help the two women who helped his teammates and him as often as they do.
As James 2:14-26 said; “Faith Without Action is Dead.”
Watson’s action in this instance was to give the two women his first NFL game check, which totaled over $400,000
That is in all likelihood more than the two women could have ever imagined in their wildest dreams. Watson did the extraordinary to help these two women. He did as the church says all should at least try to do; Take action.
