The Congregation Said “Amen”


There was a preacher whose wife was expecting a baby so he went before the Congregation and asked for a raise. After much discussion, they passed a rule that whenever the preacher’s family expanded, so would his salary.

After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the Congregation decided to hold another meeting to discuss the 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 pew, 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 of it, we wear rubbers.”

And the Congregation said, “Amen.”
