(for some reason reading this was difficult because the format was spread out way wide ???)

Delightful story of simple faith! What a reward Uncle Hubert had waiting in heaven, far greater than what was pilfered from him.
Not for everyone, but evidently what God had for Hubert!

Simple faith - like that of a child. Yet, effective in touching at least one life for eternity.

AAAAAAAARGH!!!!!! What the heck has happened to my masterpiece??? Thankyou to the above for having the patience to plough through it. I certainly wouldn't have done!

Your title says it all. Like Uncle Hubert's church-going friends, we so often over-complicate the job. Jesus simplified it for us: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and soul and love your neighbor as yourself (paraphrased from Matt. 22:37-39). Uncle Hubert had it right, none of the things he had stolen from him was worth more than the single soul God reached thru his service and certainly not worth more than those that one reached. I know you were being facetious, but "masterpiece" is not too much of a stretch in my mind.

I LOVED this piece. Great voice. Great message. Glad i took the time to read it despite the formatting. Thank you.
This is a delightful story and getting through the different format was well worth it. Uncle Hubert is one in a million.

I do think the last line of dots is what stretched it out as I did something similar once too. Maybe you can take the dots out and if that makes a difference post it in the general- This story is too good to risk some might not read it.

Congratulations for ranking 7th in your level and 18th overall.!
