The Money God
As a coworker and I were leaving work yesterday, we overheard a lady on the street approach another lady and ask, “Would you mind if I gave you money?” The other lady hesitantly said “okay,” then was handed a $10 bill by the first lady. After handing her the bill, she said, “I’d like to talk to you about God….”
I have to say that I’ve heard of a lot of different approaches for talking to people about God, but that has got to be the dirtiest trick I’ve ever seen someone pull. More than likely, the recipient of the $10 will feel obligated to stick around and talk because they took the money. Personally, I don’t want to belong to any religion that feels they have to pull tricks to get people to listen to their preaching. I would have handed her back the $10 and walked away, commenting that she couldn’t buy my convictions.
