Christ almost sold for $.25

Most of what I put on this blog is mine. Ever now and then someone sends me something that is so good I just want to share it. The following was one of those things.

Thanks Connie

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.’

When his stop came, he paused momentarily at the door, and
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?’

‘Yes’ he replied.

‘Well, 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.’
