When Someone Is More Needy Than You


In a leper colony clothes arrived for distribution among these outcasts of life. One little leper boy was asked what he needed most. He replied, “My hands are still good so I can mend my clothes when they need it, but there are some lepers who have no fingers, and some whose hands are so crippled or sore that they cannot use them. When their clothes get holes in them, they cannot mend them but must see the holes get bigger and bigger. I am thankful for my good hands, so please give the clothes to those who cannot mend their own. They are more needy than I.”
How we need such unselfishness. We should never complain when we know that there are others who are needier than we are.

Have a great week,
Bro. Harry Shomaker
