There was a man who was preaching a message to his audience. All of the sudden, he stopped in the middle of his sermon and cried “Wait. Don’t jump! The answer is in your briefcase!”.
The preacher’s audience looked baffled, and he was as well. He honestly couldn’t tell you WHY he said what he said.
A while later, he found out why. While taking a train home from a business trip, another man, a lonely man, contemplating taking his life, decided to first listen to a tape his loved one had packed away for him. He thought it was an “inspirational tape”, not necessarily a sermon.
Actually, it was both. Here’s why. When the lonely business man started that tape, he heard it played at exactly the point where it said, “Wait. Don’t jump! The answer is in your briefcase”.
He went to his briefcase and found that the one he loved had also packed away a Bible.
