During the late 1800’s an English evangelist named Henry Moorhouse made

several trips to preach in America. On one of those occassions he was

taking a walk through a poor section of town when he noticed a small boy

coming out of a store with a pitcher of milk in his hands. Just then,

he slipped and fell breaking the pitcher and spilling the milk all over

the sidewalk. Moorhouse rushed to the childs side and found him unhurt

but terrified. "Mu mama’ll whip me," he kept crying. So Moorhouse

picked up the boy and carried him into the nearby store where the

preacher purchased a new pitcher. Then he returned to the daity, hd the

pitcher washed and filled with milk. With that done, he carred the boy

and the pitcher home.

Putting the youngster down on his front porch, Moorhouse handed him the

pitcher and asked, "Will your mama whip you now?"

A wide smile spread across the boys tear stained face, "no sir, cause

this is a lot better pitcher than we had before."

In grace God saves us. He doesn’t patch up our old lifes that have been

shattered by sin and satan into a million pieces. That would not do.

His reputation is at stake. We are His workmanship!
