Jesus Trek – Chapter 29 – The Dishonest Merchant (Proverbs 11:1)

JT was hungry as he walked into the market. He found the largest market stall and approached the owner. “Pardon me sir, would you have a job for a willing worker? I don’t want much for pay, just some food.”

The merchant was looking askance at JT as he asked for a job, however when he got to the part about only wanting some food for pay, his eyes glinted and his face broke into a wide smile. “Why, certainly young man. You don’t steal anything from me, you’ll get plenty to eat when you are done.”

Jesus Trek – Chapter 28 – The Two Children

JT kept walking and wound up in the next town. When he arrived there, it was the cleanest town he had ever visited. There was a man who was sweeping the street and occasionally picking up a piece of trash. He looked like he was happy and enjoying himself. In fact, he was whistling while he was sweeping.

Jesus Trek – Chapter 25 – Thy Will Be Done

As he walked down the road, JT was glad in this wonderful day. He was glad to be alive and on this journey searching for Jesus. It seemed like life’s situations threw him directly into situations where he was forced to make decisions.

No sooner had he thought this, than he turned the bend in the road and saw a dilemma. There was a person lying by the side of the road. He looked like he had been beaten up. JT ran towards him and also saw an empty money pouch lying on the ground beside the man.
