Compassion - Paid in Full - Story

STORY:    A young boy was going from door to door selling small ornaments that he had made in order to pay his school fees. He was very thirsty and he decided to ask for something to drink at the next house. A young lady opened the door and he asked for a glass of water. She felt so sorry for him and decided that a big glass of milk would be much better. After finishing the milk, he asked her if he could pay for it. The young lady would not accept any payment for her act of kindness. As he left the house, the boy, Howard Kelly, felt much better, not just because of the milk, but because the young lady’s kindness made him more determined not to give up, but to continue to work hard.

Many years later, that same lady became seriously ill with a sickness that the local doctors could not identify and treat. So they sent her to a hospital in the big city. A Dr. Howard Kelly was called in to see this very unusual case. When he entered the hospital ward, he recognized the lady immediately. He decided to do everything in his power to cure her. After many months, he won the battle and she was cured.

Dr. Kelly knew when the lady was to be discharged and so, on that morning, he went to the hospital accounts department and asked for her account. He glanced at it, took a pen and wrote something on it. Meanwhile, the lady was nervously packing away her things, getting ready to leave the hospital. She was so afraid to see her hospital account because she knew it would be for a great deal of money. Sure enough, the amount owing was huge. Then she noticed something right at the bottom. The final amount had been crossed out and Dr. Kelly had written next to the amount: “Paid in full with one glass of milk.”


TEACHING POINT:

The saying “What you sow, you will reap”, comes from farming, and refers to the seeds that are put in the ground, and what will then grow and be harvested. Another way of putting it is: what you put in, you will get out, which is always a good phrase to remember at school.
