Let the Church Walk

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” — Jesus Luke 6:38 (NIV)

The story is told about the old fashioned preacher who was preaching up a storm as he proclaimed with great enthusiasm, “Let the church walk!!”

A dear old brother on the front pew was equally enthusiastic. He blurted out for all the hear, “Amen! Preacher. Let the church walk?”

With even greater enthusiasm the preacher responded, “Let the church run!”

“Amen!” Responded the brother on the front pew, “Let the church run!”

Being greatly encouraged, the preacher heralded a little louder and a little stronger, “Let the church fly!”

“Amen,” hollered the man on the front pew, “Let the church fly!”

“But,” said the preacher, “It takes money to make the church fly!”

“AMEN,” shouted the old timer again, “Let the church walk!”
