Fleming, a poor Scottish farmer, is working on his farm when he suddenly hears a scream and runs towards it. He sees a child his own age, drowning in a nearby swamp. He sacrifices his life to save the child.

 The next day, a fancy cart pulls up to the Scotsman’s house. A well-dressed aristocrat comes out and introduces himself to the farmer as the boy’s father.

 “You saved my son’s life. I have to give you money for that, ”the aristocrat said.

“No, I can’t take the money for the help I did. It’s something any human being would do at that moment.”

The Scottish farmer replied.

 At that moment the farmer’s son came to the door of the house.

“Is that your son?” The aristocrat asked.


The farmer replied.

“If you do not accept my cash prizes, I would like to help my son survive and take your son to London for higher education,” the poor farmer agreed.

 In time, the farmer’s son graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical College, London. He went on to become known worldwide as Sir Alexander Fleming, the inventor of the first antibiotic, penicillin, a breakthrough in world history.

Years later, the aristocrat’s son contracted pneumonia.

The only drug that saves him from death is penicillin.

The aristocrat’s name was Randolph Churchill. Many who do not know him know his son’s name. Sir Winston Churchill was the most famous Prime Minister of Great Britain.

Had it not been for the help of that innocent poor farmer who risked his life, Winston Churchill, who later led the British-led military victory in World War II, would have sunk into the abyss. If so, world history would have been written differently.

Also, if it were not for the Lord’s retribution, Alexander Fleming would have died as a farmer, doing the farming he inherited from his poor father’s father. If that were the case, there would not have been an antibiotic that would save billions of lives today. Winston Churchill, who survived death the first time, could have lost the second time.

The humanity of one man caused the fate of a world to change. Therefore, come forward without hesitation whenever possible to extend humanity. You are sure to get the result back someday.
