There was a tradesman, a painter named Jack, who was very interestedin making a dollar 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 local church decided to do a big restoration project.Jack put in a painting bid and, because his price was so competitive,he got the job. And so he started, erecting the trestles and puttingup the planks, and buying the paint and thinning it down withturpentine.Jack was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly done,when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder. The sky openedand the rain poured down, washing the thin paint from all over thechurch and knocking Jack off the scaffold to land on the lawn. Jackwas no fool.He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty, so he fell on his kneesand cried, "Oh, God! Forgive me! What should I do?"And from the thunder, a mighty Voice spoke, "Repaint! Repaint! Andthin no more!"
