An Act of Charity
One Sunday a pastor asked his congregation to consider giving a little
extra in the offering plate. He said that whoever gave the most would be
able to pick out three hymns. After the offering plates were passed, the
pastor glanced down and noticed that someone had contributed a $1,000
bill. He was so excited that he immediately shared his joy with his
congregation, and said he'd like to personally thank the person who had
placed the money in the plate. A very quiet, elderly, saintly widow shyly
raised her hand. The pastor asked her to come to the front. Slowly she
made her way to the pastor. He told her how wonderful it was that she gave
so much and asked her to pick out three hymns. Her eyes brightened as she
looked over the congregation, pointed to the three handsomest men in the
building and said, "
I'll take him and him and him."
