A young girl called Sally tells of an experience she had in one of her classes, given by her teacher Dr. Smith.
Dr. Smith was known for his practical lessons.
One day, Sally went to his class and she knew it was going to be an exciting day.
There was a big target on the wall and on a table beside it there were many darts.
Dr. Smith told his students to draw a picture of a person that they didn’t like or of someone who had made them angry in the past and he would allow them to throw the darts onto the pictures.
Sally’s friend drew a picture of a girl who had taken her boyfriend.
Another friend drew a picture of her little brother. Sally drew a photo of an old friend, putting so much detail into the drawing, even drawing the pimples on the face.
Sally was satisfied by the detail she had used.
She lined up in order to throw the darts.
Some of the students threw their darts with so much force that their targets were torn apart.
Sally was looking forward in anticipation for her turn but was filled with disappointment when Dr. Smith, due to time constraints, asked the students to return to their seats.
As she sat down.
Thinking how very angry she was because she did not have a turn to throw any darts to her target, Dr. Smith began to remove the targets of the wall.
Underneath the targets there was a picture of Jesus.
A silence fell in the classroom as the students saw Jesus’ picture all dismantled, there were holes all over his face and his eyes were cut out.
Dr. Smith only said the following words…
“If you hurt the least among you, you hurt me.” Matthew 25:40. The New King James Version reads “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” There was no need of any other words, the tears filled the eyes of the students which were focused only on Christ’s picture.
Dear brothers, read it thoroughly, study in depth what you are reading and remember that we must not make the sacrifice of Christ Jesus in vain.
Our Father in Matthew 6:14,15 says:
“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you don’t forgive men their trespasses neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”
THINK ABOUT IT brother and may God help us to reflect and to forgive those who have hurt us.
Read 1 John 3:14,15 and then go to Revelations 21:8. Compare it.
Remember that is the Word of God
God Bless You
