Illus.: “Pulling the Plow Themselves”

Shortly after the Korean War ended, two businessmen took a trip around the world. During their tour of Korea they traveled by bus with a missionary guide. In a field nearby they noticed a young boy pulling a plow. One of the businessmen commented on how poor those farmers must be. The missionary responded by telling them the real reason behind what they saw. He said after the war the family wanted to help construct a church, but they had no money to give. So they sold their ox and gave the money to the church. This spring they are pulling the plow themselves. After a moment of silence one of the businessmen said, “That must have been a sacrifice.” The missionary said, “They didn’t consider it as such. They were grateful that they had an ox to sell.”
