One Sunday a pastor asked his congregation to
consider giving a little extra in the offering plate. He said that
whoever gave the most would be able to pick out three hymns.
After the offering plates were passed, the
pastor glanced down and noticed that someone had contributed a
$1,000 bill. He was so excited that he immediately shared his joy
with his congregation, and said he'd like to personally thank the
person who had placed the money in the plate.
A very quiet, elderly, saintly widow shyly
raised her hand. The pastor asked her to come to the front. Slowly
she made her way to the pastor. He told her how wonderful it was
that she gave so much and asked her to pick out three hymns.
Her eyes brightened as she looked over the
congregation, pointed to the three most handsome men in the
building and said, "I'll take him, him, and him."
