1 Dollar and 100 Dollar Bill

One day, a one dollar bill and a hundred dollar bill got folded together and began talking about their life experiences.

The hundred dollar bill began to brag:

“I’ve had a great life,” he said. “I’ve been to all the big hotels, Donald Trump himself used me at his casino, I’ve been in the wallets of Fortune 500 board members, I’ve flown from one end of the country to the other! I’ve even been in the wallet of two Presidents of the United States, and once when Princess Diana visited the US, she used me to buy a packet of gum.”

In awe, the dollar humbly responded, “Gee, nothing like that has ever happened to me, …but I have been to church a lot!”

This story has one flaw.. The person that wrote it didn’t think about what happens after Church. What about the dollars spent driving the elderly to hospital visits, doctor visits or to the food store. What about the money we give to people that need it never expecting to see it again. How about the visits to friends homes to find out why they’ve stopped coming to Church. All the hoagie sales where we spend hours working or delivering. How about teaching Sunday school or Bible study. What about the hours spent in all the various positions in the Church or the everyday workings to keep the Church in order. Only when we have self-cleaning Churches will this story apply. These are but a few of the other things as to where our other dollars go. The biggest being the ones that only God and the person giving know about.

    The story doesn’t have a flaw in my opinion. It is just to make a point. The God I know is a God of abundance. It makes clear that some people (it doesn’t mean it applies for all) are stuck in a habit of giving just a dollar bill. God gives us so much blessings and it is a blessing to be able to bless God by giving in abundance. Besides, everything we have is already from God, so if God asks us to give a ‘big’ amount, it is not big, we can just give Him, what is His. And if we give a dollar bill it does not have to be bad, but don’t make your gift a routine. And if you are offended by this story, why so? Is it more difficult for us to give for God then give for us?
    “Your heart will always be where your treasure is.” (Luke 22:34) In the end it doesn’t really matter how much we give, but how we give. Do we want to give because we love Jesus or do we give because we feel it is our duty?
    Be blessed!
