I read this story a long time ago and I read it this morning on one of my favorite Gospel preachers’ daily blog:
“A pastor had dinner at the home of a couple in his church. After he left, the wife said to the husband, “I think he stole our spoon!” This bothered her for a whole year. A year later the couple had the pastor for dinner again. Unable to resist, the wife asked, “Did you steal our spoon last year?” The pastor replied, “No, I put it inside your Bible.”
She didn’t open her Bible for the whole year. Why didn’t she? She had no time. She was worrying about a spoon that has absolutely no eternal value whatsoever.
Did you find that “useless” spoon stuck in your Bible? Or, are you still looking for it, thinking that your pastor had stolen it? ///
