Story for thought, Please share

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from
door to door to pay his way through school, found he
had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He
decided he would ask for a meal at the next house.
However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young
woman opened the door.
Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She
thought he looked hungry so brought him a large
glass of milk.
He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I
owe you?”
“You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother
has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.”
He said, “Then I thank you from my heart.”
As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt
stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was
strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.
Year’s later that young woman became critically ill.
The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her
to the big city, where they called in specialists to
study her rare disease.
Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation.
When he heard the name of the town she came from,
a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose
and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.
Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her.
He recognized her at once. He went back to the
consultation room determined to do his best to save
her life. From that day he gave special attention to
the case.
After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly
requested the business office to pass the final bill to
him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote
something on the edge and the bill was sent to her
She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take
the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked,
and something caught her attention on the side of
the bill. She began to read the following words:

“Paid in full with one glass of milk.
Signed, Dr. Howard Kelly.”

May God give you a kind heart so you and your
generation may reap from your kindness to others,
and May your kindness never be repayed with Evil….
