The Painting Lesson

A Scottish tradesman, a painter called Jack, was very
interested in making a pound where he could. So he often
would thin down his paint to make it
go a wee bit further. As it happened, he got away with this
for some time. Eventually the Presbyterian Church decided to
do a big restoration job on one of their biggest churches.
Jack put in a painting bid, and because his price
was so competitive, he got the job. And so he set to, with a
right good will, erecting the trestles and putting up the
planks and buying the paint and thinning it down with the
turpentine.

Well, Jack was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job
nearly done, when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of
thunder. The sky opened,
and rain poured down, washing the thin paint from all over
the church and knocking Jack fair off the scaffold to land on
the lawn.

Now, Jack was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the
Almighty, so he fell on his knees and cried, "Oh, God!
Forgive me! What should I do?"

From the thunder, a mighty voice spoke: "Repaint! Repaint!
And thin no more!"
