Thursday’s Truthful Humor
Welcome to Thursday’s truthful humor where we pull truth from humor.
There was a very rich man who was just about to die and he wanted to take some of his wealth with him. So he started negotiations with God about the matter. God had never allowed this before and He did not want to set a new standard now.
But the man wouldn’t let up and finally, after many long talks, God reluctantly agreed to allow him to bring his wealth to heaven.
Just a few days before he died the rich man converted all his money into gold bullion. He died and the funeral home made sure that the suitcases containing the gold bullion went with him. He arrived at the Pearly Gates with his suitcases and there was Peter. Peter told him he could not bring the suitcases into heaven. But the man said he had already spoken to God and he had said it was OK.
So Peter got on the God phone and sure enough it was true. So Peter was curious as to what was so valuable that the man wanted to bring it into heaven. Peter said, "Could I look in the suitcases?"
So the man opened the suitcases and Peter exclaimed, "Why are you bringing pavement to heaven!"
Oh, my goodness, I can’t imagine the streets of gold we’ll walk upon in our eternal place with our Heavenly Father. There won’t be a desire for riches in heaven; we’ll have all we need. Practicing wise spending and joyful giving will pave our way.
