C. S. Lewis
But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.”
The New King James Version
At a church dinner, there was a pile of apples on one end of a table with a sign that read, “Take Only One Apple, Please. God Is Watching.” On the other end of the table was a pile of cookies where a youth had placed a sign saying, “Take All The Cookies You Want. God Is Watching The Apples.”
