A little old lady was strolling along a black sanded beach, when in the distance she glimpsed a young boy and girl reach down, pick something up and throw it back into the sea. Wondering what it was, she drew nearer and saw the sand was littered with thousands of small stranded sand dollars. The children were patiently picking them up, one sand dollar at a time, and throwing them back into the sea.
“What are you doing?” she asked.
“Saving sand dollars,” replied the children, as they continued about the job at hand.
The old woman, somewhat jaded by age, thought the children’s actions were futile.
“But the beach is littered with dying sand dollars. What possible difference can you make by doing this?”
The young girl bent over, picked up another, and threw it with all her might. With a plop the sand dollar sank safely below the water. Then, turning to the old woman, she said with all the wisdom of a child:
“I made a difference for that one!”
Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me (Matt. 25:40).
