To Be Like Christ (Part III)

“They’d taken the Bible the Farmer had in his hand to give the boy who could read-and these 3 boys in Minotiere who have never owned a book, who have never had a Bible of their own, they’d decided amongst themselves in this grand generous gesture-to split the Bible between the three of them, to tear the Bible down its bloody spine so each of them could carry a bit of the God-breathed home under his arm.

I looked into the Farmer’s eyes and shook my head: all three of those boys had decided that it was better for them all to have less, so they all had something, than for one to have everything and the rest have nothing.”

I couldn’t agree with her more. Please read the rest of Ann’s post here. We have much to learn from these three boys.

“And so faith, hope and love abide [faith-conviction and belief respecting man’s relation to God and divine things; hope-joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love-true affection for God and man, growing out of God’s love for and in us]. But the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians 13: 13 (Ampilified)
