The Thoughtful Thief
Our preacher at church yesterday told a startling story. Her house was burglarized last week: the thief climbed up on a wheelbarrow in the backyard, gained access through an unlocked window, and left through the back door in the kitchen, after having loaded a briefcase on the kitchen table with a laptop computer, jewelry, and coins.
But first, the thief carefully removed from the briefcase the Mother's Day card our preacher's young daughter had given her, and left it on the kitchen table.
That almost sounds like a parable, doesn't it?
