A   Borrowing the man’s horses to dig a canal
From the life of Abraham Owen Woodruff:   Brother Woodruff had great and kind ways to deal with his fellowmen for their betterment. While living in the Big Horn Valley, his friendship brought a man who had fallen away from the Church to renewed activity and repentance of all vices but  one—profanity. One day while the Saints were working on a canal, Brother Woodruff asked this man if he could borrow his team for a few days. The man agreed, and Elder Woodruff worked with the horses on the canal. Returning the animals, he told the brother, “I’ve driven them three days. They’ve worked fine, and they haven’t heard a word of profanity.” To this the repentant brother promised, “And they never will again from me.” Brother Woodruff’s point was well and diplomatically made. The man kept his resolve and, thanks to this tactful apostle, became a prominent bishop in the area.
