A man was asked to paint a boat. He brought his paint and brushes and began to paint the boat a bright red, as the owner asked him.

While painting, he noticed a small hole in the hull, and quietly repaired it.

When he finished painting, he received his money and left.

The next day, the owner of the boat came to the painter and presented him with a nice check, much higher than the payment for painting.

The painter was surprised and said, “You’ve already paid me for painting the boat, Sir!”

“But this is not for the paint job. It’s for repairing the hole in the boat.”

“Ah! But it was such a small service… certainly, it’s not worth paying me such a high amount for something so insignificant.”

“My dear friend, you do not understand. Let me tell you what happened:

“When I asked you to paint the boat, I forgot to mention the hole.

“When the boat dried, my kids took the boat and went on a fishing trip.

“They did not know that there was a hole. I was not at home at that time.

“When I returned and noticed they had taken the boat, I was desperate because I remembered that the boat had a hole.

“Imagine my relief and joy when I saw them returning from fishing.

“Then, I examined the boat and found that you had repaired the hole!

“You see, now, what you did? You saved the life of my children! I do not have enough money to pay your ‘small’ good deed.”

So no matter who, when, or how, continue to help, sustain, wipe tears, listen attentively, and carefully repair all the ‘leaks’ you find. You never know when one is in need of us, or when God holds a pleasant surprise for us to be helpful and important to someone.

Along the way, you may have repaired numerous ‘boat holes’ for several people without realizing how many lives you’ve saved. ❤️

  1. No worries Esme, glad you found my note. My pleasure sharing my link.
    What’s weather like where you’re at? Here it’s really windy, partly sunny and a chance of rain.
    Thanks again for being a great blog hop hostess.

    • We have had rain, sunshine, and everything in between, but that’s what we have end September/October. Getting to fall and I just love those clean crisp fall days. Take care and enjoy

    • Hi Crystal. Sorry I missed your note. My week is going well thanks, hope I can say the same about you. Thank you for coming over and sharing your link, reading and sharing the other links on your social media.

    • Thanks for your comment, Laurie. We all do need that freely given helping hand. No need to give a monstrously big thing, a smile, and thank you and helping someone over the road, sharing an out of the heart smile or showing appreciation or paying that shortfall of a few $ for the person in the queue in front of you at the grocery store.

    • Dear Barbara. I smile, something small like paying for a cup of tea or coffee for the person next in line. Somebody wanting to pay for groceries and short of some $’s, I have paid that a number of times, and the gratitude of the recipient is more worth the $ paid. No need to be huge, a small gesture goes a long way in helping others.
