….THOUGHT FOR THE DAY…..
Jesus Christ said; “LOVE YOUR ENEMIES, DO GOOD TO
THOSE WHO HATE YOU, BLESS THOSE WHO CURSE
YOU, PRAY FOR THOSE WHO MISTREAT YOU.”
( LUKE 6:27-28 *NIV )
As you know it is written; LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS
YOURSELF. ( MATTHEW 19:19 & LEVITICUS 19:18.)
So today I would like to share with you a special message . May it minister to
you as it has to me. It is titled…..
The Dart Test…
A young lady named Sally, relates an experience she had in
a seminary class, given by her teacher, Dr Smith. She says
that Dr Smith was known for his elaborate object lessons.
Now one particular day, Sally walked into the seminary 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 the students to draw a picture of some-
one that they disliked, or someone who had made them angry,
and he would allow them to throw darts at the person’s picture.
Sally’s friend drew a picture of who had stolen her boyfriend.
Another friend drew a picture of his little brother. Sally drew a
picture of a former friend, putting a great deal of detail into her
drawing, even drawing pimples on the face. Sally was very
pleased with the overall effect she had achieved.
The class lined up and began throwing darts. Some of the
students threw their darts with such force that their targets were
ripping apart. Sally looked forward to her turn, and 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.
Underneath the target was a picture of Jesus. Needless to
say 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.
It was then that Dr. Smith said only these words… “I TELL YOU
THE TRUTH, WHATEVER YOU DID FOR ONE OF THE
LEAST OF THESE BROTHERS OF MINE, YOU DID TO
ME.” ( MATTHEW 25:40. ) No other words were necessary;
as tears filled eyes of the students, as they focused only on the
mangled picture of Jesus Christ.
