Who Gets the Collection Money?
A priest, rabbi and televangelist were playing their usual
Wednesday round of golf, and started discussing their weekly
collections. Specifically, they started to compare how they
decided what portion of the collection to keep for themselves
and what portion to give to God.
The rabbi explains: "I draw a circle around myself and toss
the money in the air. Whatever lands in the circle I keep
for myself. Whatever lands outside the circle, I give to
The priest then adds: "I use a similar method, except that
whatever lands in the circle I give to God, and whatever
lands outside the circle I keep for my personal needs."
The televangelist then proclaims: "I also use the same
method. Except, that I toss the money in the air and I
figure that whatever God wants, he can take."
