You Took My Parking Space at Church-- This should wake us up...

(I came across this, and just had to share)

One day, a man went to visit a church. He got there early, parked his car and got out. Another car pulled up near, the driver got out and said, "I always park there;You took my place!"

The visitor went inside for Sunday School, found an empty seat and sat down. A young lady from the church approached him and stated, "That's my seat; You took my place!!" The visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude welcome, but said nothing.

After Sunday School, the visitor went into the sanctuary and sat down. Another member walked up to him and said,"That's where I always sit; You took my place!" The visitor was even more troubled by this treatment, but still he said nothing.

Later as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell among them, the visitor stood up, and his appearance began to change. Horrible scars became visible on his hands and on his feet. (Continued)

  • Someone from the congregation noticed him and called out, " What happened to you?" The visitor replied, as his hat became a crown of thorns, and a tear from his eye, "I took your place."
