“A Portrait of a Son” (borrowed from Stephen Arterburn of New Life Ministries)

(Audio for Driving or Facebook)

“Attention grew as the Christmas Day auction of the Estate of an art collector began. This collection included priceless works of the Masters.
The first piece of the auction, however, was a portrait of the art collector’s son who had been killed in the war. A comrade in arms, that the son rescued, painted it.
The auctioneer asked for an opening bid……the room was silent….impatience grew…(the room was filled with art collectors who wanted to bid on real treasures, Picasso, Van Gough and Monet…), finally an old man spoke…”Will you take ten dollars for the painting, it’s all I have, I knew the boy so I’d like to have it”….
“Going once, going twice…Gone! Thhe gavel fell and the auctioneer announced that the auction was over!
Stunned disbelief quieted the room….and a voice spoke up, “What do you mean, it’s over?!..The auctioneer said, “It’s simple…according to the will of the father, whoever takes the son, get’s it all”.”
Friends, that’s the same for you and the same for me.
(And that’s what happened, on Calvary)
And that’s what I get from My box of chocolates. AMEN
