The Preacher's Salary

There was a preacher whose wife was expecting a baby so he went to the congregation and asked for a raise.


After much consideration and 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 t

he preacher's salary. There was much yelling and bickering about how much the clergyman's additional children

were costing the church.


Finally, the Preacher got up and spoke to the crowd, 'Children are a gift from God,' he said. Silence fell

on the congregation.

In the back of the room, a little old lady stood up and in her frail voice said, 'Rain is also a gift from God,

but when we get too much, we wear raincoats.'


And the congregation said, 'Amen!!!!!!!!!!!!!
