Love Thy Neighbor

Contributor: SouthPawPhilly Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

One snowy night, someone decided to steal some grain from George & Keziah. It was easy to open the unlocked granary door and fill their sacks. The loss of grain was bad enough, but they carelessly left the granary door open so that the horses got in and ate grain until they foundered. The theives didn't realize that there was a hole in one of the the sacks of grain that left a tell-tale trail in the snow that could easily be followed. Morning dawned and as usual, George and the boys went to feed the livestock and milk the cows. When the corral gate was opened, there lay the two dead horses. What a tragedy! They were all simply heartsick. Keziah pointed out the trail of grain upon the snow and suggested that George quickly apprehend the thief. He left, but in a very short time he came back, slowly and thoughtfully. When questioned, he answered, "I don't want to know who the thief was. Every man in this town is my friend and I prefer not to know who stole the sacks of barley--even though it caused the death of the newly purchased horses." The thief never revealed himself but they were sure he had a guilty conscience as the word quickly spread around town about their experience. The horses were not yet paid for, so George elected literally to pay for two dead horses. He truly loved his neighbor, and this incident was just one of many that were a valuable teaching tool for their family. It also graphically illustrated why they had such an enviable reputation.
