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 Christians, 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

Watch your
 thoughts ; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
W atch  your actions; they become habits..
Watch your habits; they  become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

I'm glad a friend forwarded this to me as a reminder. So, I choose to
forward it to you - my friend.    God bless you.
