    A pastor's wife was expecting a baby, so he stood before the congregation
    and asked for a raise. After much discussion, they passed a rule that
    whenever the preacher's family expanded, so would his paycheck.

    After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the congregation
    decided to hold another meeting to discuss the p reacher's expanding
    salary. A great deal of yelling and inner bickering ensued, as to how much
    the clergyman's additional children were costing the church, and how much
    more it could potentially cost.

    After listening to them for about an hour, the pastor rose from his chair
    and spoke, 'Children are a gift from God, and we will take as many gifts as
    He gives us. Silence fell on the congregation.

    In the back pew, a little old lady struggled to stand, and finally said in
    her frail voice, 'Rain is also a gift from God, but when we get too much of
    it, we wear rubbers.'
    The entire congregation said, 'Amen.'
