Cierto hombre vino un día a la iglesia con su familia. Cuando iban de regreso a casa comenzó a quejarse de esta manera: "la música estaba demasiado alta, el sermón fue demasiado largo. El que dio los anuncios parecía que ni el mismo sabía lo que decía. Como es posible que ni siquiera tenían aire acondicionado con este calor. Y así siguió hasta que su hijo le dijo: "por favor papá, deja de criticar, por un dólar no puedes pedir mucho."
A man came one day to go to church with his family. When he went to leave, he began to complain: "Music was too loud, the sermon was too long. I have no idea what the announcements meant. There wasn't even air conditioning in this heat." And so it continued until his son told him: "Dad please, stop criticizing, for a dollar you can't expect much more."
