Painting the Church

There was a tradesman, a painter called Jock, who was very interested
in making a penny where he could, so he often would thin down paint
to make it go a wee bit further.

As it happened, he got away with this for some time, but eventually the
Baptist Church decided to do a big restoration job on the painting of
one of their biggest buildings. Jock put in a bid, and because his price
was so low, he got the job.

Well, Jock was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly
completed when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder,
and the sky opened, the rain poured down,washing the thinned paint
from all over the church and knocking Jock clear off the scaffold to
land on the lawn among the gravestones, surrounded by telltale puddles
of the thinned and useless paint.

Jock was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty,
so he got on his knees and cried: “Oh, God! Forgive me! What should
I do?”

And from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke, “Repaint! Repaint!
and thin no more!”
