(If written would be like these used on any Christian today, including you and me).
* Blessed are those who are too tired or busy to spend an hour once a week with fellow Christians --- they are my best workers.
* Blessed are those Christians who wait to be asked and expect to be thanked --- I use them.
* Blessed are the touchy who stop going to church ---they are my missionaries.
* Blessed are the troublemakers ---they shall be called my children.
* Blessed are the complainers ---I'm all ears to them.
* Blessed are those who are bored with the minister's and teacher's mannerisms and mistakes ---for they get nothing out of the sermons and lessons.
* Blessed is the church member who expects to be invited to his own church --- for he is a part of the problem instead of the solution.
* Blessed are those who gossip --- for they shall cause strife and divisions that please me.
* Blessed are those easily offended --- for they will soon get angry and quit.
* Blessed are those who do not give their offering to carry on God's work --- my helpers.
* Blessed are they who professes to love God but hates their brother and sister --- for they shall be with me forever.
* Blessed are you, reading this think it is about other people, not yourself – I've got you.

BONNIE JEAN DREWERY,
One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had 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. Years 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, and then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. 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 read these words “Paid in full with one glass of milk” (signed) Dr. Howard Kelly. Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed, “Thank you, God, that your love has spread abroad through human hearts and hands.”
Take a moment to read Galatians 6:10!
