Where the world comes to study the Bible

Matthew 19:14

Two and a Half Converts

When D.L. Moody returned one night from a service where he had preached, a friend asked him, “How many converts did you have tonight?”

He replied, “Two and a half.”

The person responded, “I suppose you mean two grownups and a child?”

“No,” said Moody, “Two children and a grownup.”

“How do you make that out to be two and a half?”

“Well, you see,” replied the evangelist, “the two children have a whole life before them, but a grownup person has only a half a life before him.”
