This made me laugh out loud for joy. A pastor friend was telling me about a drug addict that has been coming to their church. He was doing really well until the police arrested him and found a gun in his car. You can tell from the title of the post where this is going. But its even better than you think.
A date was set for a trial (possession of a firearm without license). The church prayed that God would give this man another chance. On the day, when the police opened a sealed bag before the judge to show the gun in question, they were dumbfounded to find that the gun was plastic.
Despite their insistence that the man was found in possession of a genuine firearm, the judge threw the case out. So here is the God of second chances at work - and here is His sense of humour on display. A sign to make people wonder.
