Hidden Treasures

The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

A Young Pastor Was Asked…

A young pastor was asked by the local funeral director to hold a graveside service for a transient with no family or friends.  The preacher started early but quickly got lost making several wrong turns.  Eventually, a half hour late, he saw a backhoe and its crew; but the hearse was nowhere in sight.  The workmen were eating lunch.

The diligent young pastor went to the open grave and found the vault lid already in place. Taking out his Bible, he preached an impassioned, lengthy service.

As he was returning to his car he overheard one of the workmen say, "I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years and I ain't never seen anything like that!"
