Test Of Faith

One Sunday morning a very wealthy man attended a church meeting. Part way through the service he rose to tell the rest of congregation about his Christian faith.

"I am a multi-millionaire," he said."  I attribute it all to the rich blessings of God in my life. I can 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 us about his work. I knew that I only had that one 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 do believe that God blessed that decision and that is why I am a rich man today."

When he had finished his testimony he walked slowly back towards 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."

Nice one. I heard this last Easter as I had to take my mum to church and stayed around.

You mean ordinarily you wouldn't have stayed to listen to sermon if it wasn't for your mom... Shame on you... lol

Sunday school days are far behind. Perhaps I would have been seated if my grandma was the one instead of mum and aunt.

Yes Grandma's always have your a$s in check... Grandma's are dangerous, lol...

It would have been more out of pleasing her (being my real guardian). She of course was much more strict as a kid.

I know what Grandma's are like, they just have to give you that look and you know you'd better behave yourself, hehe...

Yep. If we did not, then we would not receive our goodies.

Awww... Bless :)

So its better if one doesn't talk too much:)

As my mom tells people... Love not to boast....

That's so true! You and your mom are smart ladies:)

I love the way that little old lady responded. It seemed to be a polite way of saying: "Put your money where your mouth is"...

Spot on Mister!!!
