Baylor University
is a fine institution in Beaumont, Texas. The Christian who gave the money for
building that school later lost all his property. Men of the world asked him,
“Don’t you wish you had the money back that you put into that school?”
He replied, “Not at all. It is all that I have saved. If I had kept that
money, I would have lost it too. I am thankful that I gave that building when
I did.”

An old country
preacher was earnestly exhorting his congregation to give more liberally. He
was interrupted by a deacon who said, “Parson, you told us salvation is
free – as free as the air we breathe and the water in the river. If that’s true,
why are you always asking us for money?” The elderly preacher solemnly
replied, “Brother Jones, you’re right. Salvation is free – as free as the
water you drink. But if you want that water in the kitchen, somebody has to
pay for the pump!”
