One day in Pittsburg, PA, a car was stolen. As the thieves began stripping the vehicle they came across papers identifying the owner as Fred Rogers, host of the children’s television program Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. They quickly reassembled the car, cleaned and vacuumed it, and returned it with a handwritten note of apology under the wiper: “We’re sorry. We didn’t know it was your car.” Why would a group of thieves return a car to Fred Rogers? The answer is this: Fred Rogers was a man of immense love for humanity, especially children. His life eloquently reflected the clear commands of the Bible to be people of love.
