Faith And
Works

An old Scotsman was
operating a small rowboat for transporting passengers across one of the
little lakes in Scotland. One day a passenger noticed that he had
carved on one oar the word "Faith" and on the other oar the word
"Works." Curiosity led him to ask the meaning of this. The old man
said, "I will show you." He dropped one oar and plied the other called
"Works," and they just went around in circles. Then he dropped that oar
and began to ply the one called "Faith," and the little boat went
around in circles again–this time the other way around.
After this demonstration, the old man picked up both "Faith" and
"Works" and plying both oars together sped swiftly over the water,
explaining to his inquiring passenger, "You see, that is the way it is
in life as well as in the boat."
