Honesty is best!

 Several years ago, a new preacher moved to Houston, Texas. Some weeks
 after he arrived, he had 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, 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?
 I have been thinking lately about going to worship somewhere. 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,
 almost scary example of how much people watch us as Christians and will
 put us to the test! Always be on guard and remember (as I try to remember)
 that you carry the name of Christ on your shoulders when you call yourself
