too good to pass up

In exploring some answers to the question I raised in my previous post, I came across this little gem of an illustration. Perhaps I can work it into my sermon…

There was a $20 dollar bill and a $1 dollar bill on the conveyor belt at the downtown Federal Reserve Building. As they were laying there side by side, the $1 dollar bill said to the $20 dollar bill, "Hey mannnnnn, where have you been, I haven't seen you in a longtime?"

The $20 dollar bill replied, "Man I have been having a ball! ". I've been traveling to distant countries, going to the finest restaurants, to the biggest and best casinos, numerous boutiques, the mall uptown, the mall downtown, the mall across town and even a mall that was just newly built. In fact, just this week I've been to Europe, a professional NBA game, Rodeo Drive, the all day retreat spa, the topnotch hair salon, and the new casino!! I have done it all!!!"

After describing his great travels, the $20 dollar bill asked the $1 dollar bill, "What about you, Where have you been?"

The $1 dollar replied, "Well, I've been to the Baptist Church, the Methodist Church, the Presbyterian Church, the Episcopalian Church, the Church of God in Christ, the Catholic Church, the Mormon Church, the A. M. E. Church, the Disciples of Christ Church, the..."

"WAIT A MINUTE, WAIT A MINUTE", shouted the $20 dollar bill to the $1 dollar bill.

"What in the world is a church??!!!"

I know, I know, you’re probably groaning, but aren’t all good sermon illustrations supposed to make you groan!?! ;)
