Dear my loving bros and sis in Christ,
I write to share with you the story below, which i believe it is of benefits to you.
Several years ago, a new preacher moved to Houston , Texas .
Some weeks after he arrived, he had 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. "
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 lately about going to worship somewhere. I just wanted to see what you would do if I gave you too much change. I'll see you at church this 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 remember (as I try to remember) that you carry the name of Christ on your shoulders when you call yourself a "Christian."
I'm glad I got this post to you as a reminder.
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
