Several years ago a preacher moved to a new city. He often took the bus from his home to the shopping center. A month after he arrived, he was riding the same bus near his house. When he sat down, he discovered that the driver had accidentally given him 25 cents extra, while returning the change.
As he considered what to do, he thought to himself, you better give the 25 cents back. It would be wrong to keep it. Then he thought, “Oh, forget it, it’s such a small amount. 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, the preacher paused momentarily at the door, then he handed the 25 cents back 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 this area? I have been thinking lately about meeting you to learn something from you.I just wanted to see what you would do, if I gave you too much change.”
When the preacher, stepped off the bus, his knees became weak and soft, he literally grabbed the nearest light pole, and held on for support, and looked up to the heavens and cried: “Oh God, I almost sold my faith for 25 cents!”
Dear Readers, please give a fitting Moral to the story!!
