While Mrs Rigsby is cutting Wesley's hair, she quotes scripture to him, stating "The Bible says, if your hand causes you to steal, then cut it off." In the DVD version, she makes a snipping motion with her scissors in front of his mouth, adding "same goes for your tongue, too". See more »
This film shows the beauty of a simple elderly woman's efforts to obey Jesus' teachings in Matthew 25. She has to struggle with her own misgivings about helping the boy, coming from her fears and common self-protection, as well as with the opposition of her adult children and even fellow church members. But her simple acts of love toward the boy prove to be a most powerful and effective way of reaching into his soul and reforming him. It is a profound critique of our tendency to institutionalize both the elderly and juvenile people in our society, and shows that basic humanity and love are still what life is really all about.
