Making Parables

    Stewart Robertson met Marshall, the great politician, and Marshall said:

    "Why don't you preach in parables like your Master?"

    Robertson said: "I would if I knew enough. I wish you would make me a few."

    He never could get to see him from that day until one day he met him on a corner, and he said:

    "Marshall, where are those parables?"

    "I knew you would be after me, but I give it up. I tried, but I couldn't make them. I didn't know it was so hard."

    People say, "Oh, any one can make up a sermon." But if you think so, just try it!
