The Baptist Minister,Catholic Priest, and Jewish Rabbi, leaders in town decided to bring their congregations together for a Tri-Faith assembly.
About an hour before the assembly was to begin, the three leaders gathered together to discuss how they should divide up the collection to be taken during the assembly.
The Baptist Minister came up with the first suggestion: Let's draw a big circle on the ground and spread a white sheet, and toss all the money into the air, what ever falls inside the circle we give to God.
Then the Catholic Priest chimed in, I agree the circle is a great idea except when we toss the money into the air, whatever falls outside the circle is how much we will give to God.
After a minute or so, the Jewish Rabbi says, I have it, the perfect solution. The circle thing is great, and when we toss the money into the air, whatever God wants as His part He will catch.
Finally the collection baskets came to the back area where the three religious leaders were standing. They had the volunteers all at the same time toss the money into the air. Suddenly a powerful gust of wind blew through the back and all of the money was blown into a dressing room off to the side, and then the wind blew the door to the wind closed too. A sign on the door read "God's Room Only Righteous May Enter"
If you want to get a good laugh out of God, tell Him your plans.
