Two men were walking home after a Halloween party and decided to take a shortcut through the cemetery just for laughs.
Right in the middle of the cemetery they were startled by a tap-tap-tapping noise coming from the misty shadows.
Trembling with fear, they found an old man with a hammer and chisel, chipping away at one of the headstones.
"Mister," one of them said after catching his breath, "You scared us half to death --we thought you were a ghost! What are you doing working here so late at night?"
"Those fools!" the old man grumbled. "They misspelled my name!"
Oct. 31 is one of the best opportunities we have all year to share the gospel with children. Where else do we have contact with so many young people coming right to our front doors? Tracts can be used with candy and placed in trick-or-treat bags. What a great challenge to Christians to use this opportunity to share the gospel of Christ with 31 children this Halloween."
Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
-1 John 3:18 (New International Version)
Dear Lord we pray that we would take the opportunities you give us to share your Love. In Jesus’ name, amen.
