you took my parking place..

One day, a man went to visit a church, He got there early, parked his
car and got out. Another car pulled up near the driver got out and
said, " I always park there! You took my place!" The visitor went
inside for Sunday School, found an empty seat and sat down. A young
lady from the church approached him and stated, "That's my seat! You
took my place!" The visitor was somewhat distressed by this rude
welcome, but said nothing.

After Sunday School, the visitor went into the sanctuary and sat
down. Another member walked up to him and said, " That's where I
always sit! You took my place!" The visitor was even more
troubled by this treatment, but still He said nothing.
Later as the congregation was praying for Christ to dwell among them,
the visitor stood up, and his appearance began to change. Horrible
scars became visible on his hands and on his sandaled feet. Someone
from the congregation noticed him and called out, "What happened to
you?" The visitor replied, as his hat became a crown of thorns, and a
tear fell from his eye, "I took your place."
