Souls Are of Infinite Value

fh020016Recently, I read of a certain evangelical pastor of a fashionable city church who started a work among slum boys. He succeeded in getting a lot of them into the church parlors for meetings, and taught them the way of salvation. Unfortunately the boys soiled the parlor carpets and upholstery. The pastor was called before the church officers to give an account of the damage done. His defense was something like this: “Brethren, when called to give an account to my Master, what shall I say? — `Here, Lord, is the church with which thou didst entrust me. It is in good shape. The church parlor carpets and chairs are as good as new, all nice and clean. May He not say to me, `Where are the souls which I sent you to win for me? Where are the boys?”
