Once there was a traveling preacher who was making his rounds to several preaching points. One of these preaching locations was the edge of a corn field. Arriving early at the corn field the preacher found himself alone. He decided to wait and see if anyone came to hear his sermon. Finally a lone farmer appeared raising the congregational count to two. The preacher asked the farmer if he should go ahead and preach since there were only the two of them. The farmer said,


“Well, I’m only a simple farmer. But if I went to the barn to feed the cows

and only one cow showed up to eat, I’d still feed her.”


Hearing this the preacher went ahead and preached. At times his voice raised to shouting. At times he raised his hands and waved his Bible. All to emphasize his biblical points. With sweat pouring down his face the preacher finally finished and then asked the farmer what he thought of the sermon. The farmer said,


“Well, I’m only a simple farmer. But if I went to the barn to feed the cows

and only one cow showed up to eat, I’d still feed her.

But I wouldn’t feed her the whole blasted barn.”
