It is said that a Covington grocer once met his match.
He purchased a table castor for one dollar. Then he marked it with a tag inscribed "$14" & gave it to a Methodist minister whose church his family attended.
The next day the minister brought the castor back to the grocer & said to him, "I am far too poor to display on my table so valuable a castor as this & if you have no objection I should like to return it & take $14 worth of groceries for my family in its stead."
The merchant could do nothing but comply.

Rom 8:6-7 (KJV): “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.”
