Joshua and the Little Old Ladies

Joshua, 13, had something happen to him recently that really made him appreciate the blessing of having cultivated a spirit of helpfulness.

Joshua was in a thrift store looking at electronic toys. Two little elderly ladies were looking at a toy to purchase for one of their grandchildren. They could not figure out what it was or what it was suppose to do. Joshua stepped in and explained the toy and its many functions to them. The ladies thanked him.

As he walked away, he heard one say to the other, "That nice kid really helped us." The other replied with emphasis, "That wasn't a kid. That was a YOUNG MAN."
