A Caring Child
The Bible lesson had been about the story of
Joseph and Mary. The teacher had given the children a graphic account of all
the hardships of the father and mother and how, to crown all, they could
find no room in the Inn and had in the end been forced to take refuge in the
manger. The sad story had made a deep impression on at least one member of
the class and he thought hard about it all the following week.
At the commencement of the next Scripture lesson
he raised his hand.
"Well Andrew" asked the teacher "what is it

Andrew "is there onie wird o yon fowk that war luiken fir a houss ?"
