One particular day , Sally arrived to Sunday school early and knew it was going to be a fun day. On the wall, was a big target and on a nearby table were many darts.
Mr. Smith told the students to draw a picture of some one they liked and someone they disliked or someone who made them angry, and he would allow them to throw darts at the persons picture.
Sally's friend drew a picture of a girl who had stole 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 the pimples on her face. Sally was pleased with the overall effect she had achieved.
The class lined up and began throwing darts, with much laughter and hilarity. Some students were throwing the darts with such force, their targets were ripping apart. Sally look forward to her turn and was filled with disappointment when Mr. Smith asked the kids to return to their seats.
Sally sat thinking about how angry she was that she didn't get her turn to throw the darts at her target.
Mr. Smith began removing the targets from the wall.
Underneath the target was a picture of Jesus...
A hush fell upon the classroom, as each student viewed the mangled picture of Jesus; holes and jagged marks covered his face. His eyes were pierced. Mr. 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" (Matthew 25:40)
No other words were necessary.
