Tight Wad!No entertainer was ever known for being as stingy as was the late Jack Benny. In one TV sketch years ago, Jack was walking down a street when a robber came up and shoved a gun in front of Benny. The robber said, "OK, mister, you're money or your life." Jack stood there as if frozen. The robber waited a moment and then said, "Didn't you hear me? Your money or your life." Still Jack said nothing. The robber, in a very frustrated voice said, "I'm telling you for the last time, your money or your life." Jack looked around at the audience as only he could do and then looking at the robber said, "Well, wait a minute, will you, I'm thinking, I'm thinking."Actually, not putting God first in your finances can steal you life. How? When we put money ahead of God, we live for "nothing." All earthly wealth and possessions will be left behind when we die. What we do for the Lord has eternal consequences. Don't even think about it - put God first in your finances and you will find a joy that money can't provide!!!Dr. J. Mike MinnixEditorPastorLife
