BUY A COMMANDMENT

Discussion in 'Humor' started by choir loft, Dec 5, 2017.

  1. I'm a member of a Messianic Jewish congregation and our rabbi recently told this story during a sermon;

    "G-d wanted to give a commandment to mankind, so He approached an Arab with His gift.
    The Arab wanted to know what the commandment was all about. G-d told him that the commandment said one should not kill. The Arab politely declined. 'We can't abide by that one,' he admitted.

    So G-d went to an American and asked if He could give a commandment.
    The American asked what the commandment required of him and G-d told him that the commandment was to not covet his neighbor's stuff. The American politely declined. 'We can't live by that rule,' he said.

    So G-d went to the Jews and asked if He could give them a commandment.
    The Jews responded by asking how much it would cost. G-d said the commandment would be free.
    'ok,' they said, 'give us ten.'"

    and that's me, hollering from the choir loft...
