It Was Only a Quarter


Several years ago, a preacher from out-of-state accepted a call to a
church in Houston, Texas. Some weeks after he arrived, he had an
occasion to ride the bus from his home to the downtown area. When he
sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him a
quarter too much change.

As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, "You'd better
give the quarter back. It would be wrong to keep it." Then he thought, "Oh, forget it, it's only a quarter. Who would worry about this little
amount? Anyway, the bus company gets too much fare; they will never
miss it. Accept it as a 'gift from God' and keep quiet." -- (Bet this one
gets used a lot)

When his stop came, he paused momentarily at the door, then he handed
the quarter to the driver and said, "Here, you gave me too much
change."

The driver, with a smile, replied, "Aren't you the new preacher in town? I have been thinking a lot lately about going somewhere to worship. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change. I'll see you at church on Sunday."

When the preacher stepped off of the bus, he literally grabbed the
nearest light pole, held on, and said, "Oh God, I almost sold your Son
for a quarter."

Our lives are the only Bible some people will ever read. This is a really scary example of how much people watch us as Christians and will put us to the test! Always be on guard and remember that you carry the name of Christ on your shoulders when you call yourself "Christian."

Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

You posted that on the old site didn't you?

I've always liked that one.

Did I? I got this in my e-mail this morning and didn't think that I had ever read it before.

I have seen it before, just not sure where (could have been the old CHM). It is a good one at any rate, and deserves to be revisted.

This is a good one and shows us we always have to be true Christians.
