When therefore the LORD knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,…
A colporteur entered an Austrian shop. He relates: "A little girl asked me what I wanted. 'I have Bibles to sell.' The little girl brought word that her parents had plenty of books, and would rather sell than buy. This led me to a little more boldness in my attack. I walked in a little nearer, and talking to some one supposed to be in the room, I explained what my books were. 'My husband is a Roman Catholic,' was the reply; 'he would object to read the Bible.' 'But I am very fond of my Bible; may I just read a short portion to you?' Within a second room the husband himself was at work. He overheard our conversation and the passages read, and, peeping round the corner, said he would buy a copy. By-and-by a second man issued forth from the inner room. He would also take a copy. A regular talk began, and the people said, 'Stay and have some dinner with us.' I did, and we parted capital friends."
