Comedian Jeff Foxworthy recently told a remarkable story about a lost Bible that miraculously showed up and dramatically changed a drug addict’s life.
Foxworthy, who runs a weekly Bible study for homeless men in Atlanta, recalled how one man revealed to him a very personal story about inheriting $70,000 and falling into a life of partying, drugs and girls.
Over time, that man “lost his job, lost his house, lost everything,” the comedian said in a video produced by Lightworkers. And among his only possessions was a backpack that housed a Bible his mom had given him as a child; that cherished Bible included a love note she had written to her son.
Somehow, amid the partying, the man lost that bag as well as the Bible inside of it.
A year and a half later, a guy hired him to help him clean out an apartment building — and that’s when the Bible mysteriously re-emerged.
“As they’re rooting through [the building], he finds a stack of books covered with dirt, and he reaches down to one of the books and he opens it up and there’s the love letter from his mother,” Foxworthy explained. “It’s his Bible from a year-and-a-half ago, a hundred miles away from where he lost it.”
It was that amazing find that led the man to change his ways entirely. Now, he’s been clean for eight years and he’s helped scores of people get off the streets.
