At a church in =
a nearby town a volunteer worker on the stewardship committee noticed =
that the most successful lawyer in the whole town claimed to be a member =
(but never attended), yet hadn’t made a contribution. This guy was =
making about $400,000 a year so the volunteer thought, Why not call =
him?


"Sir, =
according to our research you haven’t made a contribution to the church =
for 2019 or 2020. Would you like to do =
so?"

The lawyer =
responded, "A contribution? Does your research show that I have an =
invalid mother who requires expensive surgery once a year just to stay =
alive?"


The worker =
felt a bit embarrassed and said, "Well, no sir, I’m just trying to =
help the church . . . "


"Does =
your research show that my sister’s husband was killed in a car =
accident? She has three kids and no means of =
support!"


By now the =
worker felt quite embarrassed. "I’m terribly =
sorry."


"Does =
your research show that my brother broke his neck on the job and now =
requires a full time nurse to have any kind of normal =
life?"


The church =
voluneteer is completely humiliated at this point. "I am so sorry =
sir, please forgive me."


Before =
hanging up, the lawyer added, "The gall of you church people! I =
don’t give anything to my own family, so why should I give money to the =
church?"
