There was a tradesman, a painter named Wayne, who was
very interested in making a penny where he could so
he often thinned down his paint to make it go a wee
bit further. As it happened, he got away with this
for some time, but eventually the Baptist Church
decided to do a big restoration job on the painting
of one of their biggest buildings.

Wayne put in a bid, and because his price was so low,
he got the job. So he set about erecting the
scaffolding and setting up the planks, and buying the
paint and, yes, I am sorry to say, thinning it down
with turpentine.

Well, Wayne was up on the scaffolding, painting away,
the job nearly completed when suddenly there was a
horrendous clap of thunder, and the sky opened, the
rain poured down washing the thinned paint from all
over the church and knocking Wayne clear off the
scaffold to land on the lawn among the gravestones,
surrounded by telltale puddles of the thinned and
useless paint.

Wayne was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from
the Almighty, so he got down on his knees and cried:
"Oh, God, forgive me; what should I do?"

And from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke...



"Repaint! Repaint! And thin no more!"
