Aiming at your enemies

     A young lady named Sally, relates an experience she had in a seminary 
class, given by her teacher, who we'll call Brother Smith.  She says Brother 
Smith was known for his elaborate object lessons.

 One particular day, Sally walked into seminary and knew they were in for 
another fun day.  On the wall was a big target and on a nearby table were 
many darts.  Brother Smith told the students to draw a picture of someone 
that they disliked or someone who had made them angry .  .  .  and he would 
allow them to throw darts at the person's picture.

 Sally's girlfriend (on her right), drew a picture of a girl who had stolen 
her boyfriend.  Another friend (on her left), drew a picture of his little 
brother.  Sally drew a picture of Brother Smith, putting a great deal of 
detail into her drawing, even drawing pimples on his
face.  Sally was pleased at the overall effect she had achieved.

 The class lined up and began throwing darts, with much laughter and 
hilarity.  Some of the students threw their darts with such force that their 
targets were ripping apart. Sally looked forward to her turn, and was filled 
with disappointment when Brother Smith, because of time limits, asked the 
students to return to their seats.

 As Sally sat thinking about how angry she was because she didn't have a 
chance to throw any darts at her target, Brother Smith began removing the 
target from the wall.

 Underneath the target was a picture of Jesus .  .  . A complete hush fell 
over the room as each student viewed the mangled picture of Jesus; holes and 
jagged marks covered His
face and His eyes were pierced out.

 Brother 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."

 No other words were necessary; the tear-filled eyes of each student focused 
only on the picture of Christ.  The students remained in their seats .  .  . 
even after the bell rang .  .  .  then slowly left the classroom, tears
