There was a lawyer in a metropolitan city that was leaving his firm one night and as he was walking ot his car he saw a dirty bum on the sidewalk leaned up against a building. He had pity on the bum and told him that he wanted to help him out. He took put a pen and began to write a check for the man. He told him to take that check to the bank listed on the check the next day. He should take the money and get some food, a room to take a hot shower in and sleep in a comfortable bed.

The next evening the lawyer was walking to the car and he saw the same man again. He asked him why he didn’t follow his instructions. The vagabond replied by telling the lawyer that he went down to the bank and he saw clean professional people walking around in shirts and ties and he knew there was no way they would cash the check for someone as dirty as him. The lawyer then explained to him that the check would not be cashed based on the way he appeared but based on the name on the check. All he had to do is present the check and all would be well.

(From a sermon by Michael Andrews, The Serpent in the Wilderness, 4/24/2011)
