Jesus in Disguise

By Joe R. Barnett

Martin of Tours was a Roman soldier. One cold winter day, a beggar asked him for alms. Martin had no money, but tearing his worn, frayed coat in two, he gave half of it to the beggar.

That night Martin dreamed about heaven. He saw Jesus, wearing half of a soldier's coat. An angel asked, "Master, why are you wearing the tattered old cloak? Where did you get it?"

"My servant Martin gave it to me," said Jesus.
