Do better now my child…

An elementary school teacher penned these simple words about a boy who was struggling in her class; he had come to the teacher begging for another chance.

He came to my desk with a quivering lip, the lesson was done. “Have you a new sheet for me dear teacher, I’ve spoiled this one.” I took his sheet all soiled and blotted, and gave him a new one all unspotted; and into his tired heart I cried “Do better now my child.”

I went to the throne with a trembling heart, the day was done. “Have you a new day for me dear Master, I’ve spoiled this one.” He took my day all soiled and blotted, and gave me a new one all unspotted; and into my tired heart He cried “Do better now my child.”

Ravi Zacharias
