Careful How You Say It

There have been so many serious problems throughout the world that I decided to include something this week that I hope will give everyone a laugh.  It is a little story that came into my presence, but I do not remember how.

religious story
There’s a story about a revival where a barber was saved.  The preacher told him that since he was a barber and got to meet a lot of people, he could do a great work for the Lord if he would talk to them about religion and salvation.  When he asked how he could get into a conversation like that with his customers, the preacher said, “Just do it casually.  Talk to them about their soul, ask if their house is in order, if they are prepared to die, and so on.”

The first man to come in the next day wanted a shave, so the barber put a hot towel over him, talking about the weather and what-not, and then after he had lathered the man up good, he figured it was time to get down to the religion part.  He grabbed up his razor, stropped it a few times, pointed at the man, and said bluntly, “Brother, are you prepared to die?”  The man jumped up and ran out of the barbershop with the lather still on his face.
