The cut-in-pieces tract



A Christian once distributed some tracts on a steamboat. One man on receiving a tract, folded it up, took out his pen-knife and cut it into pieces. He then held it up in derision and threw it away. But when a piece of it stuck to his coat, he picked it off and saw on it the word "God." He turned it over and saw on the other side the word "Eternity." These two great words, "God -- Eternity," stared him in the face. He tried to drive them away by going to the bar and drinking, then to the gambling table, then to social conversation, but those awful words, "God -- Eternity," haunted him until he surrendered to Jesus Christ and was saved.
