They Dared Lose Home

Dr. Truett of Texas was invited to a church that was raising $6,500 to dedicate a church building. After $3,500 had been promised, the offerings ceased.

Then a plainly-dressed woman arose and spoke to her husband who was taking the names. “Charley, I wonder if you would be willing to give our little cottage, just out of debt. We were offered $3,500 for it yesterday. Would you be willing to give our little house for Christ that His house may be free?” The fine fellow responded in the same high spirit: “Jennie, dear, I was thinking of the same thing.” Then looking up at Truett with his face covered with tears, he said, “We will give the $3,500.”

Then there followed a scene beggaring all description. Men and women sobbed aloud, and almost in a moment the $3,500 was provided. Then without invitation there came down the aisle men and women, saying, “Sir, where is the Saviour, and how can we find him?”
