How Much Does Your Sermon Worth?

A man and his ten year-old son were on a fishing trip miles from home.

At the boy’s insistence, they decided to attend the Sunday worship service at a small rural church.

The father forgot to bring any cash, so he reached in his pocket and gave his son a dime to drop into the offering plate as it was passed.

As they walked back to their car after the service, the father complained, “the service was too long,” he lamented. “The sermon was boring and the singing was off key!”

Finally the boy said, “Daddy, I thought it was pretty good for a dime!”
