The Bible (A very touching story *-^!!!)
A young man from a famous family was about to graduate from high school. It was the custom
in that affluent neighbourhood for the parents to give the graduate an automobile. Bill
and his father had spent months looking at cars, and the week before graduation they found
the perfect car. Bill was certain that car would be his on graduation night.
Imagine his disappointment when, on the eve of
his graduation, Bill's father handed him a gift-wrapped Bible! Bill was so angry, he threw
the Bible down and stormed out of the house. He and his father never saw each other again.
It was the news of his father's death that brought Bill home again.
As he sat one night, going through his father's possessions that he was to inherit, he
came across the Bible his father had given him. He brushed away the dust and opened it to
find a cashier's check, dated the day of his graduation, in the exact amount of the car
they had chose together.
