In as much as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren
A young lady named Sally, relates an experience she had in a Seminary
class, given by her teacher, Brother Smith. She says Brother Smith was
known for his elaborate object lessons.
One particular day, Sally walked into seminary 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 made them angry and he would
allow them to throw darts at the personís picture.
Sallyís girlfriend (on her right), drew a picture of a girl she
disliked. Another friend (on her left), drew a picture of his little brother.
Sally drew a picture of Brother Smith, putting a great deal of detail
into her drawing, even drawing pimples 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.
As Sally sat thinking about how angry she was because she didnít have a
chance to throw any darts at her target, Brother Smith began removing
the target from the wall.
Underneath the target was a picture of Jesus.
A complete hush fell over the room as each student viewed the mangled
picture of Jesus.
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; the tear-filled eyes of each student
focused only on the picture of Christ. The students remained in their
seats even after the bell rang then slowly left the classroom, tears
streaming down their faces.
