|At a church meeting, a very wealthy man rose to tell the rest of those present about his Christian faith.|
"I'm a millionaire," he said, "and I attribute it all to the rich blessings of God in my life. I remember that turning point in my faith. I had just earned my first dollar and I went to a church meeting that night. The speaker was a missionary who told about his work. I knew that I only had a dollar bill and I had to either give it all to God's work or give nothing at all. So at that moment, I decided to give my whole dollar to God. I believe that God blessed that decision, and that is why I am a rich man today."
When he finished and moved toward his seat, there was an awed silence.
As he sat down, a little old lady sitting in the same pew leaned over and said to him, "I dare you to do it again."
|The pastor stood before his congregation on Sunday.|
With his arms outreached he announced, "Friends, I have good news and bad news regarding the money we need to fix the roof of our church."
There was a slight murmur in the crowd as everyone was well aware of the pitiful condition of the roof.
"The good news is," the pastor continued, "that after a careful review, I've been able to determine that we have enough money to properly repair the roof."
As a jubilant titter filled the pews, the pastor raised his hands and motioned the group to settle down.
"Of course there is a bit of bad news to go with it," he said as everyone hushed. "The money to fix the roof is still in your pockets!"
|Two old Jewish men waking down the street and they see a sign in front of a church: Become a Christian today! Earn $100!|
So the one guy Abe, says, "100 bucks. hmmm. I think I'll do it. I could use the money."
His friend Izzy says, "How could you do that ? You're a Jew. You been one all your life."
Abe says, "So what. It's just a label. I'm doing it!"
And he walks across the street and into the church. He returns 20 minutes later and Izzy says, "So did you do it?"
Abe says, "Yup. I'm a Christian."
And izzy asks, "Well did they give you the hundred dollars?"
To which Abe shakes his head in disgust and says, "That's the trouble with you Jews. All you think about is money!"
|A climber fell off a cliff, and as he tumbled down, he caught hold of a small branch wedged in the rock.|
"HELP! IS THERE ANYBODY UP THERE?" he shouted.
A majestic voice boomed through the gorge:
"I will help you, my son, but first you must have faith in me."
"Yes, yes, I trust you!" cried the man.
"Let go of the branch," boomed the voice.
There was a long pause, and the man shouted up again, "IS THERE ANYONE ELSE UP THERE I COULD TALK TO?"
