A story was told of two clergyman who were fingering and counting money as it went into the church coffers. One said to the other, “No longer need we say, ‘Silver and gold have we none.’–to which the other more introspective clergyman replied, ‘But neither can we say, in the name of Jesus Christ, arise and walk!”
I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people : and I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
