> TO DO A GOOD DEED
> A little boy about 10 years old was standing before a
> shoe store on Broadway, barefooted, peering through the window,
> and shivering with cold.
> A lady approached the boy and said, "My little fellow, why
> are you looking so earnestly in that window?" "I was asking God
> to give me a pair of shoes," was the boys reply.
> The lady took him by the hand and went into the store, and
> asked the clerk to get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She
> then asked if he could give her a basin of water and a towel, and he
> replied: "Certainly," and quickly brought them to her.
> She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and,
> removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet and dried
> them with a towel. By this time the clerk had returned with the socks.
> Placing a pair upon the boy's feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes,
> and tying up the remaining pairs of socks, gave them to him.
> She patted him on the head and said, "No doubt, my little fellow,
> you feel more comfortable now?"
> As she turned to go, the astonished lad caught her by the hand, and
> looking up in her face, with tears in his eyes, answered the question with
> these words, "Are you Jesus?"
> You might be the ONLY Jesus a person will see!
