Keith Kendell, Pastor of Winchester Friends Church of Winchester Indiana sent in the following item which he got from Charles M. Davis in Daily Guideposts. 47394 I used to visit a tiny general store in the country. The proprietor had a clerk named Jake who I always thought was the laziest man ever created. Then one day I noticed that Jake was nowhere around. I asked “Where’s Jake?” The proprietor answered, “Oh, he retired.” I said, “Retired? Then what are you doing to fill the vacancy?” The owner replied, “Jake didn’t leave no vacancy!” Davis concludes: These words have stayed with me a long time. I think often of how sad it might be if Heaven’s final judgment of my efforts was: “He didn’t leave no vacancy.” Would I deserve it? I hope not!
