In a remote district of Wales a baby boy lay dangerously ill. The widowed mother walked five miles through the night in a drenching rain to get the doctor. He hesitated about making the unpleasant trip.
He questioned, “Would it pay?”
He knew he would receive no money for his services, and, besides, the child, if his life was saved, would no doubt— become a poor laborer. But love for humanity, and a sense of professional duty, conquered, and the little life was saved.
Years after, when this same child, Lloyd George, became chancellor of the exchequer, the old doctor said, “I never dreamed that in saving the life of that child on the farm hearth, I was saving the life of a national leader.”
God is constantly justified in the responsibilities He has placed upon us for preserving life, both material and spiritual, and in withholding from us the power to decide whether or not a little child is worthy to live or die.”—The Expositor; Vol. 20; No. 229; October, 1918.
