Honesty is the Best Policy

For the past year or so, my husband has helped count the collection money after church. One Sunday a visitor placed a $500 check in the plate. After the service my husband congratulated the priest on the large donation. "I’m sure it was because of your wonderful sermon," he gushed.

"Oh, boy," replied the priest. "If you can’t be more honest than that, how can I trust you to count our money?"
