Good Works of Man

" I have some sweets in my hand that you like very much. But I suffer from leprosy and my hands are covered with germs. Hence, the sweets I have in my hands are not edible. I have to take some medication to clean my hands before I can take the sweets in my hand and share it with others.

The good works of a man who do not believe in Christ can be compared to these sweets in the hands of a leper. No matter how good his deeds are, they are not complete unless the man washes himself in the blood of Jesus Christ and cleanse himself. "

A beautiful allegory that I heard from Mrs. Mariamma Thampy
