This story was cleverly written to show how the telephone can be both a curse and a blessing. Thank God for pastors who pick up the phone to listen and for encouragers who hear God's voice.

Heartwarming story. I especially liked the line "I contemplated using the phone as a skipping stone on the lake." I'm sure many pastors have the same thought! Personally I would prefer to have ended the story after the "maybe He was". Sometimes adding on an explanation to what the message of the story is, kind of kills the ending. Your story was powerful enough for people to think through & make the same conclusion themselves. Great story though
Thank you for a stirring reminder of how I use my phone, especially with my pastors.
I do concur with Linda, however, about ending it sooner as a story, though if you had more of a devotional in mind I can see why you concluded it as you did.
