An amazing thing happened to a newlywed couple on their safari in South Africa.
While touring the bush one last time they came upon an elephant, which they admired from a distance…
… And suddenly the beast started to charge them.
As the huge animal lumbered toward the couple they thought they were doomed…
… But their guide stepped in and stopped the elephant in its tracks.
And what was so amazing was how he did it!
He just stepped forward, raised his hand like he was directing traffic, and shouted ‘whoooa’… and the elephant halted on his command!
When I saw a video of this, I thought to myself “Now there’s a man who knows how to take command of a situation.”
And it’s a good thing he did… as all three of these people were on their way to being trampled.
Now you and I may never face such a life and death situation.
But we all encounter circumstances where we need to step in and say ‘whooa’… in order to stop some wrong or harm from being done.
And may God give us the courage to do just that when such occasions arise.
