The more we depend on God, the more dependable we find God is.
A young lady named Sally, relates an experience she had in a seminary class,
given by her teacher, Dr. Smith. She says Dr. Smith was known for his
celaborate object lessons. One particular day, Sally walked into the seminary class and
knew they were in for a fun day.. On the wall was a big target, and on a
nearby table were many darts.
Dr. Smith told his students to draw a picture of someone that they disliked,
or someone who had made them angry, and he would allow them to throw darts at
the person's picture, if they wished. Sally's girlfriend drewa picture of a
girl who had stolen her boyfriend.
Another friend drew a picture of his little brother.
Sally drew a picture of a former friend, puttin g a great deal of detail into
her drawing, even drawing pimples on the face. Sally was pleased with the
overall "special effects" of her drawing.
The class lined up and began throwing darts.
Some of the students threw their darts with such force, and anger that their
targets were ripped apart.
Sally looked forward to her turn, but was filled with disappointment when Dr
Smith, because of time limits, asked the students to return to their seats.
As Sally sat thinking about how angry she was because she didn't have a
chance to throw any darts at her target, Dr. Smith began removing the target from
the wall. To everyone's surprise, beneath the targets 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 were pierced.
Dr.Smith said only these words....."In as much as ye have done it unto the
least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto Me.." Matthew 25:40.
No other words were necessary; tears filled the eyes of the students, focused
>only on the picture of Christ.
