…………………….THOUGHT FOR THE DAY…………………….
‘ASSUREDLY, I SAY TO YOU, INASMUCH AS YOU DID TO
ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE MY BRETHREN, YOU DID
IT TO ME.’
( MATTHEW 25:40 )
I received the following story from one of our brothers’ in Christ.
I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I, for though I have seen it
before, it seemed perfect to share with you today.
A t-Shirt with holes in it, jeans, and no shoes was literally Bill’s
wardrobe for his entire four years of college. He was brilliant.
Kind of esoteric and very, very bright. He became a Christian
while attending college. Across the street from the campus was
a well-dressed, very conservative church. They wanted to
develop a ministry to the students but were not sure how to go
One day Bill decided to go there. He walked in with no shoes,
jeans, his T-shirt, and wild hair. The service had already started
and so Bill walked down the aisle looking for a seat. The church
was completely packed and he couldn’t find a seat. By now,
people were really looking a bit uncomfortable, but no one said
anything. Bill got closer and closer and closer to the pulpit, and
when he realized there were no seats, he just sat down right on
By now the people are really uptight, and the tension in the
air was thick. About that time, the minister realized that from way
at the back of the church, a deacon was slowly making his way
toward Bill. Now the deacon was in his eighties, had silver-gray
hair, and a three-piece suit. A godly man, very elegant, very
dignified, very courtly. He walked with a cane and, as he started
walking toward this boy, everyone was saying to themselves that
you can’t blame him for what he’s going to do. How can you
expect a man of his age and of his background to understand
some college kid on the floor?
It took a long time for the man to reach the boy. The church
was utterly silent except for the clicking of the man’s cane. All
eyes were focused on him. You couldn’t even hear anyone
breathing. The minister couldn’t even preach the sermon until
the deacon did what he had to do. And now they saw this
elderly man drop his cane on the floor. With great difficulty,
he lowered himself and sat down next to Bill, smiles, shakes his
hand, and worshiped with him so he wouldn’t be alone.
Everyone choked up with emotion. When the minister
regained control, he said, “What I’m about to preach, you
will never remember. What you have just seen, you will
The moral of the story, “Be careful how you live. You may
be the only Bible some people will ever read”.
I asked the Lord to bless you as I prayed for you today.
To guide you and protect you as you go along your way……
His love is always with you, His promises are true, and
when we give Him all our cares, you know He will see us
