What can we learn from Peter’s taking the man by the hand and lifting him up?
President Harold B. Lee
“Now in my mind’s eye I can picture (the lame) man, what was in his mind. ‘Doesn’t this man know that I have never walked? He commands me to walk.” but the biblical record doesn’t end there. Peter just didn’t content himself by commanding the man to walk, but he ‘took him by the right hand, and lifted him up.’
“Will you see that picture now of that noble soul, that chiefest of the apostles, perhaps with his arms around the shoulders of this man, and saying, ‘Now, my good man, have courage, I will take a few steps with you. Let’s walk together, and I assure you that you can walk, because you have received a blessing by power and authority that God has given us as men, his servants.’ then the man leaped with joy.
“You cannot lift another soul until you are standing on higher ground that he is. You must be sure, if you would rescue the man, that you yourself are setting the example of what you would have him be.
You cannot light a fire in another soul unless it is burning in your own soul”
