A pastor's wife was expecting a baby, so he stood before the congregation and asked for a raise.
After much discussion, they passed a rule that whenever the preacher's family expanded, so would his paycheck.
After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the congregation decided to hold another meeting to discuss the preacher's expanding salary. A great deal of yelling and inner bickering ensued, as to how much the clergyman's additional children were costing the church, and how much more it could potentially cost.
After listening to them for about an hour, the pastor rose from his chair and spoke,'Children are a gift from God, and we will take as many gifts as He gives us'. Complete silence fell on the congregation.
From the back pew, a little old lady struggled to stand, and finally said in her litte frail voice,'Rain is also a gift from God, but when we get too much of it, we wear rubbers..'
The entire congregation said,'Amen..'
This is a joke. You know, HUMOR! Sorry it offended you.
As Christians, we MUST always be careful on what we SAY and DO....
Our conversations (what we speak) and our actions (what we do) MUST always bring GLORY to our God.
Just remember some thing....the more you develop Christlike character in every way, the more you will bring GLORY to God.
We always tell our kids this.....
