Spurgeon's Quick Wit

Hope you like this little "story" as much as I did.

"My mother said to me one day, 'Ah Charles! I often prayed the Lord to make you a Christian, but I never asked that  you might become a Baptist.' I could not resist the temptation to reply, 'Ah, mother! the Lord has answered your prayer with His usual bounty and given you exceeding abundantly above what you asked or thought.'"

excerpt from C. H. Spurgeon 
Autobiography: Volume 1, p. 45
