Good Deed

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one penny left, and he was very hungry.

He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely thin young woman opened the door.

Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, How much do I owe you?

You don’t owe me anything, she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept any payment for a kindness.”

He said….. “Then I thank you madam from the bottom of my heart.”

As Howard Kelly, the boy, left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and mankind was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Many years later that same young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled! They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in a specialist to study her rare disease.

Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.

Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once.

He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to her case.

After a long uphill struggle, the battle was won and the young woman was cured.

Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, and then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She read these words…..

“Paid in full with one glass of milk” (Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: “Thank You, God, that your love has spread broadly through human hearts and hands.”

There’s a saying which goes something like this: Bread cast on the waters comes back to you. The good deed you do today may benefit you or someone you love at the least expected time. If you never see the deed again at least you will have made the world a better place – And, after all, isn’t that what life should be all about?

Now you have two choices.

You can pass this page on and spread a positive message to others. Or you can ignore it and pretend it never touched your heart.

The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which to burn…..

GOOD FRIENDS ARE LIKE ANGELS, YOU DON’T HAVE TO SEE THEM TO KNOW THEY ARE THERE

Always do unto others as you would like others to do unto you.
