Who is your Tonto today?

Harold J. Smith may have been born this day back in 1919. It’s hard to nail down a correct day for actors in Hollywood! They seem to fudge their ages just as bad as we do!
Maybe you remember Harold better as the Indian friend, Tonto, to the Lone Ranger of the 1950’s movies and TV series. Jay Silverheels was always helping the Masked Man in all his Western adventures. He never got the lead role, but the Lone Ranger could not do his job well without Tonto by his side.
Come to think of it, the Lone Ranger was never really Lone. Tonto was constantly there. You could not separate the two in your mind. Even the Bible had their pairs. Moses and Aaron and later Joshua. Elijah and Elisha. Paul and Silas. God knew we needed someone else to help us out. When you feel like a “lone ranger” in doing church today, just remember that there are probably more Tontos out there giving you support than you really know. They may not be very vocal, but you really can’t do without them. Find time today to give them a call or write them a note of encouragement.
