.B. Simpson, the founder of the Christian and Missionary Alliance, told of a

man who advertised for a coachman. Among those who came were two who seemed

to him to be particularly bright. He took them aside and asked them how near

they could drive to the edge of a precipice without falling over.


The first candidate answer that he could go within half an inch and had

frequently done so, just shaving the edge and feeling perfectly safe. He then

asked the other the same question. "Well, sir," replied the man modestly, "I

really cannot tell, because I have never allowed myself to venture near the

edge of a precipice. I have always made it a rule to keep as far as possible

from danger, and I have had my reward in knowing that my master and his

family were kept from danger and harm."


The master had no difficulty in deciding between the two candidates. "You are

the man for me," he said, "the other may be brilliant, but you are safe."

(The Holy Spirit, Camp Hill: Christian Publications, 1994)
