One Sunday, a pastor told the congregation that the church needed some extra money, and he asked the people to consider leaving a little extra in the offering plate during the service.
The pastor said that whoever gave the most, would be able to pick out three hymns.
Well, after the offering plates were passed around and returned to the altar, the pastor glanced down and noticed that someone had placed a $1,000 bill in the offering.
He was so excited that he immediately shared his joy with his congregation.
The pastor said he would like to personally thank the person who placed the money in the plate.
A very quiet, elderly, saintly lady, who was sitting all the way in the back of the church, shyly raised her hand.
The pastor asked the elderly lady to come to the front of the church.
Slowly, she made her way down the aisle, to where the pastor was standing.
He told her how wonderful it was that she gave so much, and to thank her, he asked her to pick out three hymns.
The old lady’s eyes brightened as she looked over the congregation, and then she pointed to the three handsomest men in the building and said, “I’ll take him, and him, and him.”
