I thought we could all learn from this story. The next time someone gets on our very last nerve and we are going to give them a piece of our mind...Think about this...

Sally related an experience she had in a Bible class taught by Professor Smith. He was known for elaborate object lessons. One day, Sally walked in the classroom and knew they were in for a fun day. One the wall was a big target;on a table were many darts.

Smith told the students to draw a picture of someone they disliked or someone who had made them mad in the past. Sally’s friend drew a girl who had stolen her boyfriend. Another drew a picture of his little brother. Sally drew a former friend with great detail,even drawing pimples on the face. Sally was pleased with the effort she achieved.

The class lined up and began throwing darts. Some threw with such force that  the target ripped apart.Sally looked forward to her turn, but was disappointed  when the teacher said they were out of time.

As she sat down,thinking about how angry she was because she did not have a chance to throw her dart at the target, the Professor began removing the target from the wall. Underneath was a picture of Jesus.

A hush fell over the room as each student viewed the mangled picture of Jesus. Holes and jagged marks covered His face and His eyes. Smith said only these words, ” Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,ye have done it unto me”

No other words were necessary-the tear filled eyes of each student focused only on the picture of Christ.
