Why All My Converts Suck

You have perhaps heard the story of Spurgeon, the great pastor in the nineteenth-century London, who was walking down the street one day when a man who was drunken and leaning on the lamppost yelled out to him, “Hey, Mr. Spurgeon, do you remember me?” And Spurgeon replied, “No, why should I?” The man said, “Because I’m one of your converts.” To which Spurgeon responded, “Well, you must be one of mine; you’re certainly not one of the Lord’s.”
