Description of Item
Unlike her tender-hearted sister, Helen's choices are dictated by fear of what her friends might think if she associates with someone so shabby and so different! Her unchecked temper causes great harm, but God's love proves to be greater than Helen ever imagined.
Helen is only one year older than Betty, but far more thoughtful - far more hard-working - but she has another problem: her hot temper! How true it is that God sees us not as we do. He looks at the heart, while we tend to judge by outward conduct, and form shallow opinions of others. See how the story of "the good Samaritan" plays out in this tale, and how Helen learns to face the truth about herself.

Helen and Betty could not be more different in their perspectives of the destitute people that live around them. When Helen, the older sister, hears the story of the Good Samaritan she is rewarded for her classroom achievements, while the other sister chooses to live the example of the Good Samaritan. Helen lives for herself and is constantly worried about the opinions of others; Betty searches ceaselessly for ways to be a blessing to others. When faced with the realities of living the life of the Good Samaritan, Helen reveals the treachery of her own heart as she mercilessly withholds good from a dirty street urchin. This story will reach your heart, especially when you read how Helen responds to unexpected mercy and forgiveness she did not deserve.
