The Inspiring Pumpkin...
A lady had recently been baptized. One of her co-workers asked her what it was
like to be a Christian. She was caught off guard and didn't know how to answer;
but when she looked up, saw a jack-o'-lantern on the desk and answered:
"It's like being a pumpkin."
The coworker asked her to explain that one.
"Well, God picks you from the patch and brings you in and washes off all the dirt
on the outside that you got from being around all the other pumpkins. Then he
cuts off the top and takes all the yucky stuff out from inside.
He removes all those seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then he carves you a new
smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all to see. "It is our
choice to either stay outside and rot on the vine or come inside and
be something new and bright."
P.S. YOU'LL PROBABLY NEVER LOOK AT A PUMPKIN THE SAME WAY AGAIN!!
