An elderly man
was quite unhappy
because he had lost his favorite hat. Rather than purchasing
a new one, he
decided he would go to church
and steal one out of the vestibule.
When he got there, an usher intercepted him at the door and
took him to a pew
where he had to sit and
listen to an entire sermon on the Ten
After church, the man met the preacher in
the vestibule doorway, shook his hand vigorously and said,
“I want to thank you
for saving my
soul today, preacher. I came to church to steal a
hat, but after hearing your sermon on the Ten Commandments,
I decided against
“You mean the Commandment, Thou shall not steal,
changed your mind?” the preacher asked.
“No, the one
about adultery did,” the old man said. “As soon as you
said that, I remembered
where I left my old hat.”
God Bless and keep reading.
