A a disabled boy on crutches was walking with a few packages under his arm. It was with great difficulty he painstakingly made his way to the railway station. All the people around him were rushing up to the station and one of them knocked down the boy. His packages scattered on to the road. The man who knocked him down was angry with the boy for walking clumsily.
Another gentleman who had been walking behind him, picked up the boy and the packages, put his crutches in place and even slipped a little money in to his hand. With a kind smile he went on his way. The boy who had not known such kindness, called out to the gentleman inquiring, "Mister, please sir, are you Jesus?"
"No," replied the Good Samaritan, "but I am one of His followers."
There is an old song we used to sing as young people -
'to be like Jesus, to be like Jesus,
all I ask is to be like Him,
all through life's journey,
from earth to glory (heaven),
all I ask is to be like Him'.
The good book says 'And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you'.
If you have received the kindness of God; pass it on.
