It Would Be Worth It

Bruce Larson, commentary on Luke, p. 78

Charles Leber, a Presbyterian missionary, was in Westphalia, Germany at a clinic for handicapped children. A wealthy businessman came to tour the facilities and said to the doctor, "These are very pathetic children. What ratio of cures do you get? How many go back to normal life?" "About 1 in 100." "1 in 100! It's not worth it." "Yes it is. If that one was your child it would be worth it."
