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 elaborate object
lessons. 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 someone that they
disliked or someone who had made them angry, and he would allow them to throw
darts at the person's picture.
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 a former friend,
putting a great deal of detail into her drawing, even drawing pimples on the
face. Sally was pleased at 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.
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... A complete hush fell over the
room as each student viewed the mangled picture of Jesus; holes and jagged marks
covered His face and eyes were pierced.
Smith said only these words... "In as much as you have done it unto the
least of these my brethren, you have done it unto Me." Matthew 25:40.
other words were necessary; the tear-filled eyes of each student focused only on
the picture of Christ.
