from God: Congratulations! You've Won A Millions Dollars!
lesson on the time value of money
Joe, a new convert to Christianity and
a first year student at Harvard Business School, was impressed by what the Bible
has to say about the power of prayer. He thought he had discovered a path to instant
wealth and happiness.
So Joe says to God, "I'll bet a thousand
years is just like a minute to you."
God replies, "Yes,
Joe, you've got that right."
Then Joe says, "God, I'll
bet a million dollars is just like a penny to you."
again, "Yes, Joe, you're right once again."
Going for the
trifecta, with thoughts of what he was shortly to be doing with his instant million,
Joe asks: "Would you give me a million dollars?"
Joe, but itll take just a minute."
