The Preacher

 

Be careful what your kids overhear…

As the pastor shook hands with the congregation leaving the church, a little boy looked up with a closed fist said, “Here, I have something for you.” The pastor opened his hand and the little boy dropped a quarter into it. Not wanting to hurt the boy’s feeling he simply smiled and said, “Thank you.”

Well, it did not end – the next Sunday and the next – the same thing. Finally, the pastor could not take it any more; he had to know what was up. He called the boy aside and talked with him, “I really appreciate the gifts but why are you doing it?”

“Well” said the boy, “I just wanted to help you – my dad says you are the poorest preacher we have ever had.”
