A Brother Like That
A friend of mine named Paul received an automobile from his brother as a
Christmas present. On Christmas Eve when Paul came out of his office, a
street urchin was walking around the shiny new car, admiring it. "Is this
your car, Mister?" he asked.
Paul nodded. "My brother gave it to me for Christmas." The boy was astounded
. "You mean your brother gave it to you and it didn't cost you nothing? Boy,
I wish ..." He hesitated.
Of course Paul knew what he was going to wish for. He was going to wish he
had a brother like that. But what the lad said jarred Paul all the way down
to his heels.
"I wish," the boy went on, "that I could be a brother like that."
Paul looked at the boy in astonishment, then impulsively he added, "Would
you like to take a ride in my automobile?"
"Oh yes, I'd love that."
After a short ride, the boy turned and with his eyes aglow, said, "Mister,
would you mind driving in front of my house?"
Paul smiled a little. He thought he knew what the lad wanted. He wanted to
show his neighbors that he could ride home in a big automobile. But Paul was
wrong again. "Will you stop where those two steps are?" the boy asked.
He ran up the steps. Then in a little while Paul heard him coming back, but
he was not coming fast. He was carrying his little crippled brother. He sat
him down on the bottom step, then sort of squeezed up against him and
pointed to the car.
"There she is, Buddy, just like I told you upstairs. His brother gave it to
him for Christmas and it didn't cost him a cent. And some day I'm gonna give
you one just like it ... then you can see for yourself all the pretty
things in the Christmas windows that I've been trying to tell you about."
Paul got out and lifted the lad to the front seat of his car. The shining-
eyed older brother climbed in beside him and the three of them began a
memorable holiday ride.
That Christmas Eve, Paul learned what Jesus meant when he said: "It is more
blessed to give..."
