Youth Corner


Several years ago a 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 better give the quarter back.  It would be wrong to keep it.  Then he thought, "Oh", forget it, it's only quarter.  Who would worry about this little amount? Anyway, the bus company already 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." When my friend stepped off the bus, he literally grabbed the nearest light pole, and held on, and said, "O God", I almost sold your Son for a quarter". Our lives are the only Bible some people will ever read.

Wow! This was really something to think about.  Daily temptations . . . Daily chances that Satan slips in on us and whispers, It's just a Quarter . . . Who cares about such as little amount???
