The Gift, or the Wages

A group of workers were returning from a job in the country to receive their week's wages at their employer's office. An elderly man asked them, "Did you ever hear of a day when the worker will not want his wages?"
"Listen, then," went on the old man: "God speaks of such a time," and opening a well-worn Bible which he had drawn from his pocket he read the words, "The wages of sin is death."
Are you prepared for such wages? Would it not be better to accept the gift? "The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
God is ready to give you the gift even now, but if you will not accept the gift, you must receive the wages.
