John was a very lonely, wealthy old man. He had worked hard all his life and built a great business and made loads of money. But, he was all alone. One Sunday evening as he was talking a walk to clear his head, he was drawn to a church where he heard wonderful, joyous music. It was a spiritual renew service. John slipped into a pew in the back and soaked in the glorious music and the pastor’s excellent message. At the close of his message the pastor asked if anyone present would like to give a testimony about how God had blessed them. Several people had spoken when John felt “moved” to share his story. He told how once when he was a young boy he had worked all day for a shiny silver dollar. At the end of the day, he was so proud of his shiny silver dollar. On his way home, he heard music coming from a church just like this one. He went inside and when it came time for the offering, the only money he had was the shiny silver dollar in his pocket. If he dropped the coin in the collection plate, he would be broke. He really struggled with himself but finally when the offering basket got to him, he proudly dropped in that shiny coin. He told how that had been many years ago; but, because he did not hold anything back from God that night, God had truly blessed him with great wealth. Full of pride, the gentleman took his seat. When he did a little old lady was overheard saying, “I dare you to do it again.” Money, itself, is neither good or bad – it is simply dangerous.
