A pastor’s wife was pregnant, and he asked his congregation for a pay raise… they took a vote, and decided that every time a pastor had a child, their pay would be increased…
…after the preacher’s 6th child, the congregation began to get uneasy about the pastor’s high pay rate. They met to have another vote….
The pastor said to his audience, “Children are a gift from God, and we should welcome as many gifts as He gives”
Silence fell over the congregation until an old women spoke up from the back pew.
“Father, rain is a gift from God, too, but when we get too much of it we put on our rubbers”
