Poor and rich

An impoverished old man applied for membership in a rich church.

The pastor attempted to put him off with all kinds of evasive remarks. The old man, becoming aware that he was not wanted, finally said that he would pray on it.

Several days later he returned. Well, asked the pastor, did the Lord give you a message?

Yes Sir, he did was the old man’s answer. He told me it wasn’t any use. He said, ‘I’ve been trying to get in to that same church myself for ten years, and I still can’t make it.’
