    There was a preacher whose wife was expecting a baby. The
    preacher went to the congregation and asked for a raise.
    After much consideration and discussion, they passed a rule
    that whenever the preacher's family expanded, so would his
    paycheck.

    After six children, this started to get expensive and the
    congregation decided to hold another meeting to discuss
    the preacher's salary.

    There was much yelling and bickering about how much the
    clergyman's additional children were costing the church.
    Finally, the preacher got up and spoke to the crowd,
    "Children are a gift from God, and we will take as many
    gifts as He gives us."

    Silence fell over 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."
