Think About It

Written By: Charles Reese


I was standing in line at the truck stop to pay for my fuel. The young man in front of me was a very muscular man who was cussing in frustration of having to wait in line. His arm was bigger than my leg. I reached up, and I do mean UP, and felt of his arm. “I think you will do, “ I said. “ What do you mean?” I’d like to make you a deal. You see, several years ago I sold my soul to the devil. I’ve had everything I have ever wanted. Life has been great. But then a few weeks ago, the devil came back to me and said it was about time to pay up. But, then the devil said, if you can find someone to go to hell in your place, I’ll let you off the hook. So, I was wondering what you would charge me to go to hell in my place.” “ You’re crazy man! You don’t have enough money for me to go to hell in your place!” “ Then what are you going for? I know you are going because I hear you reading the road signs, referring to the cussing. I can write a check for a million dollars right know!” Of course I could have written the check, but it would not have been any good. “That’s alright, I said. “ I have already found someone to go to hell in my place.”

Who? “Jesus. And he went to hell in your place. You don’t even have to go.”

“ Man, I have never heard anything like that before. I’ve really got to think about this.” He stepped up and paid his fuel bill and walked out the door. I have not seen him since, but I sure do hope he found time to THINK ABOUT IT! What about you?
