Always Watching!

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.'

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