Poison in the Packet

Poison in the PacketPoison in the Packet by Hesba Stretton.

The Beamond household received a package wrapped in brown paper and labeled "Poison." After the package was opened they thought it was a joke because it contained nice clothes for the children. When troubles came they had to reconsider what it meant. The moral in this story is the vanity of nice clothing and the trouble it causes. Important scripture is Matthew 5:3—"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
