QUOTE OF THE DAY: “WHERE SINS ABOUND, GOD’S LOVE ABOUNDS MUCH MORE”
ANCHOR TEXT: “She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more” John 8:11.
A young man, the only son of a New England farmer, indulged in criminalities and wasteful lifestyle when at college and incurred debts which he could not pay. He was arrested for forging the name of a friend of his father. After he was tried, convicted and sentenced, he escaped from the police on the way to prison and hid in the far west. The father raised funds to cover the forgery, got a pardon from the governor for his son and spent several thousands of pounds to hire a private detective to find him. Coincidentally, the hired detective was the former police officer from whom his son escaped. The young man’s father gave the former officer a note for his son and sent him to find him. He did find him. The room in which he was found had but one entrance, so that escape could only be made by the door through which the police officer entered. No sooner had he come into the room than the young man recognized the detective and supposed that he had been hunted down at last and would be re-arrested and taken back to prison. He rushed for the door.
As he passed, the former officer said, ‘Stop, John! I have not come to arrest you, but to put into your hands the governor’s pardon and to take you home to your father who sent me to find you and give you a letter.
