Keeping The Sabbath

A prominent Doctor of Divinity during a visit to a rural parish in the North had conducted the morning service in the village church, and in the course of the afternoon he was enjoying a quiet walk in the lovely summer weather. He had not, however, gone very far before he was challenged by one of the Elders of the Congregation.

    "Are ye on an errand o mercie?" he was asked.
    "Oh no" replied the visitor. "I am just enjoying a short walk and admiring the beauties of nature."
    "Juist whit A thocht" returned the Elder. "Shairlie a chiel lyke ye micht weill ken that this is no a day fir onie sic a thing."
    "But, my friend" answered the Reverend Doctor quietly "did not the Master himself walk abroad on the Sabbath and even pluck the ears of corn?"
    "Weill, gin he did" came the dour reply "A dinna think onie the mair o him for't."
