A young lady named Sally, relates an experience
she had in seminary class, given by her
teacher, who we will call Brother Smith.
Sally said Brother Smith was known for his
elaborate object lessons. One particular day,
Sally walked into class and knew they were
in for another "fun" day. On the wall was a
big target and on a nearby table were many darts.
Brother Smith told the 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.
Sally's girlfriend drew a picture of a girl who had stolen her boyfriend.
Another friend drew a picture of his little brother.
Sally drew a picture of Brother Smith, putting a great deal of
detail into her drawing, drawing even the dimples on his face.
Sally was pleased at the overall effect she had achieved.
The class lined up and began throwing darts, with much
laughter and hilarity.
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 Brother Smith, because of time limits,
asked the students to return to their seats.
Brother Smith began removing the target from the wall.
Underneath was a picture of Jesus......
A complete 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 out.
Brother 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."
No other words were necessary...tears filled
eyes of each student as they looked at Jesus picture.
The students remained in their seats...even after the bell rang...deep in thought...the simple lesson sinking in.
Who did you throw darts at today?????
