And what if He took it all?

A Lutheran pastor, a Catholic priest, and a Jewish Rabbi debated how to divide the offertory: which part would go to the clergy and which part to God to spread the Good News. 

The Lutheran drew a chalk line across the aisle, threw out the money and said, to the right, to God, to the left, to clergy. 

The Catholic followed suit and drew a circle onto the church floor, into which he poured the money: whatever fell outside would belong to God, while everything inside would go to the priest. 

The Rabbi say, "Dear brothers, you give God no chance whatsoever. Therefore, I shall throw the money up into the air and say, "Lord, take what you need."
