Too Good To Be True

Too Good to be True?

Not all good offers has a catch.  To grab a chance, sometimes you just have to step ahead with a leap of faith. This simple story tells about it.  Read on..

A wealthy businessman in a mid-western town had signs printed and placed all over the town.
They stated that if any man in the town, who owed debts, would come to his office on a certain day between nine and twelve in the morning, he would pay the debts.
Naturally, that promise was the talk of the town. Very few believed it. They thought there was a catch somewhere.
The day came, the businessman sat in his office at nine.
By ten, no one had come.
At eleven a man was seen walking up and down outside, glancing occasionally at the office door.
Finally, he opened it, put his head in, and asked, “Is it true that you will pay any man’s debt?”

“That’s right,” the rich man replied. “Are you in debt?”
“I certainly am,” the caller answered.
“Do you have along the bills or statements to prove it?”
The visitor produced the documents and the businessman wrote out a cheque covering all of them.
Before twelve o’clock two other men came, and also had their debts paid.

People outside could not believe it…. But there was no time left for them to have their bills paid.
If people don’t believe the goodness of man; how can they believe in the goodness of God?
