    A pastor's wife was expecting a baby, so he stood before the
    congregation and asked for a raise. After much discussion, they passed a
    rule that whenever the preacher's family expanded, so would his paycheck.

    After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the congregation
    decided to hold another meeting to discuss the preacher's expanding salary.. A
    great deal of yelling and inner bickering ensued, as to how much the
    clergyman's additional children were costing the church, and how much more
    it could potentially cost.

    After listening to them for about an hour, the pastor rose from his
    chair and spoke, 'Children are a gift from God, and we will take as many
    gifts as He gives us. Silence fell on the congregation.

    In the back pew, a little old lady struggled to stand, and finally said
    in her frail voice, 'Rain is also a gift from God, but when we get too much
    of it, we wear rubbers.' The entire congregation said, 'Amen.'
