A Quarter For Your Son
(Author Unknown)

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 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 almost scary example of how much people
watch us as Christians and will put us to the test! Always be on guard and remember (as I try to remember) that you
carry the name of Christ on your shoulders when you call yourself, "Christian."
