A Must Read Story – A Hole In A Boat

A Hole In A Boat

This is a story of a man who owned a small boat. Whenever he found some leisure time he would take his family out on the boat and went fishing in the sea near their hometown.

At the end of one such fun family trip he noticed a small hole on the bottom of the boat. He thought he will fix it later since he won’t be using it for a while. However, he did call a painter to repaint the boat.

One day the man’s two sons wanted to go on a jolly ride in the repainted boat.  So the man launched the boat with just two of his sons in it but he forgot about the hole in the boat.

After couple of hours he remembered about the hole. Frantically he ran to the sea because both his sons didn’t know how to swim. However, by the time he arrived at the sea the boys were done boating and were about to head back home.

The man was surprised when he saw the hole fixed. He soon realized the painter might have fixed it.

The man took a valuable present and went to visit the painter. The painter was confused and wondering why he brought such an expensive gift and said, “You have paid me already for the paint job.  What is this for?”

The man said, “I have only asked you to paint the boat but you have fixed the hole which saved my two sons from drowning.  And for that I cannot thank you enough.

So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith. Galatians 6:10

Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it. Proverbs 3 :27
