Are you the man who fed the sparrows?

Some years ago, a Scottish minister told his congregation about a dream he’d had in which he’d died and was standing at the so-called Pearly Gates, proudly telling Saint Peter about the sermons he’d preached and the great churches he’d served. But Saint Peter said no one had heard them in heaven. So he mentioned his community involvement and the accolades he’d received for it. But they had no record of that either. Sorrowfully, the pastor turned to leave, when Peter said, ‘Are you the man who fed the sparrows?’ ‘Yes,’ the Scotsman replied. ‘Well. come in,’ said Saint Peter, ‘The Master of the sparrows wants to thank you.’
Great achievements and prominent positions may prove what talented people we are, but it’s the small acts of kindness that reveal our true character.
