What Would YOU Do For One-Hundred Thousand Dollars?
This could be YOURS
MONEY, and how it affects certain people
"It's only money." "You can't take it with you." Have you heard these old sayings somewhere in your life? Sure you have. We all have. And for the most part, they are both true. Along with the saying, "the love of money is the root of all evil," which was been mis-quoted numerous times as "(money) is the root of all evil," and how many times did we shout "amen"?
You do not need a program, or road map, to let you know that today's subject is "money." What a "lucrative" topic. A topic that is bound to make "cents."
Can you imagine what our world would be without money? Let's see. Broke. Worthless. And a lot of poverty. Plus going back to the "barter system," trading chickens for lumber. That sort of thing.
Money is good if used and managed with a realistic manner. Money too, is a non-living thing, and doesn't know who is handling it. I said that to say this. I have heard preachers in years past, one near Destin, Florida say in his pulpit, "a casino developer offered me one-hundred thousand dollars to help with the expansion of our church, and I told him, (sinful) money will never be used in (this) house of God." How noble. How dedicated. Did it ever occur that money is only ink and numbers printed on a special grade of paper and doesn't belong in the "Evil Idols Department"?
I would have taken the casino developer's money without batting an eye, invited him to church and thanked him. Guess that's why I wouldn't be a good preacher.
One closing view about money. It is NOT a sin to be filthy rich. Time was, not so far back in our country, religious people mis-taught the scripture, "it's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter heaven." I know. I've heard this one a few times. Riches, when worshipped with a heart full of greed, can keep one from having eternal life. But riches when used for good, is fine with God. Even Abraham, husband of Sarah and father of Isaac, the Bible says, "was very rich." So was King David and his son, Solomon. I guess my point has been made.
Now for the "meat" of my story. And this is not a gambling-related topic, but a topic that will cause you to stop, think, and search yourself for the answer to the question I am asking: "What would you do for one-hundred thousand dollars?"
Take your time. And if you like, leave your answer in the comment box below. I think I may receive a lot of interesting answers.
While you are thinking of what you would do with that much "moo-lah," . . .here are 10 things that "I" would do to get one-hundred thousand dollars," . . .
1.) Eat (at one sitting) 12 Krystal burgers. With 3 cups of black coffee.
2.) Go out on a date with Jessica Alba. And pay for her dinner.
3.) Drink samples of coffee's from around the world.
4.) Fly to Washington, D.C., and beg to see President Obama.
5.) Appear on CNN, on my own accord, and tell all the one-liner jokes in my arsenal without pay.
6.) Fly to New York City, where CBS Studios are located and "crash" the taping of Two and a Half Men, Mike and Molly and if I wasn't arrested by then, continue my "ruckus romp" by crashing The Late Show with David Letterman. Bet Dave would be surprised.
7.) Agree to sell the rights to why I did all that "crashing" to a powerful publishing company and make tons of money.
8.) Try to find Casey Anthony and see if she would take me out to eat at one of Florida's finest burger joints.
9.) Sing on Fifth Avenue in New York City and give all of my proceeds to charity.
10.) Visit Charles Manson and while there, be wearing a gorilla suit.
These tough things would be "the" things "I" would do if someone offered me one-hundred thousand dollars. Tax-free. Cash. In small bills of all denominations.
You see, "I" am not afraid to throw my dignity in the sewer. Trash my name as if it were used carbon paper. With that one-hundred thousand dollars, I could take ALL of my followers on a thee-week vacation to Las Vegas or maybe to the Caribbean.
After giving a big chunk of my "loot" to some deserving charity.
Anyone got the $100,00.00 to start this game?
Just think what YOU could do

(Just) talking about meddlers and busy bodies is not enough. It is time I did something about them.
