A young minister was asked to hold a graveside funeral service for a homeless man with no family or friends. The funeral was to be at a new cemetery out in the country, and this man was the first to be laid to rest there.
The minister had trouble finding the location, but after driving country roads for an hour he spotted a backhoe, an open pit, and two workers eating lunch. He parked and introduced himself as a minister, and he asked the two workers to accompany him while he performed this sacred duty. In the pit he saw the metal covering of the casket, and he performed a brief but sincere funeral service.
When he was done, the minister thanked the workers and started walking back to his car.
Over his shoulder he heard one of the workers say, “I never saw anything like that before, and I’ve been putting in septic systems for 20 years.”
Remember, Don’t be a victim!
