    Not really reliigious but here it is:

    The Janitor

    An unemployed man goes to apply for a job with Microsoft as a janitor.

    The manager there arranges for him to take an aptitude test (Section: Floors, sweeping and cleaning).

    After the test, the manager says, "You will be employed at minimum wage, $5.15 an hour. Let me have your e-mail address,
    so that I can send you a form to complete and tell you where to
    report for work on your first day."

    Taken aback, the man protests that he has neither a computer nor
    an e-mail address. To this the MS manager replies, "Well, then,
    that means that you virtually don't exist and can therefore
    hardly expect to be employed."

    Stunned, the man leaves.

    Not knowing where to turn and having only $10 in his wallet, he
    decides to buy a 25 lb flat of tomatoes at the supermarket.
    Within less than 2 hours, he sells all the tomatoes individually
    at 100% profit. Repeating the process several times more that
    day, he ends up with almost $100 before going to sleep that
    night. And thus it dawns on him that he could quite easily make
    a living selling tomatoes.

    Getting up early every day and going to bed late, he multiplies
    his profits quickly. After a short time he acquires a cart to
    transport several dozen boxes of tomatoes, only to have to trade
    it in again so that he can buy a pick-up truck to support his
    expanding business.

    By the end of the second year, he is the owner of a fleet of
    pick-up trucks and manages a staff of a hundred former
    unemployed people, all selling tomatoes.

    Planning for the future of his wife and children, he decides to
    buy some life insurance. Consulting with an insurance adviser,
    he picks an insurance plan to fit his new circumstances. At the
    end of the telephone conversation, the adviser asks him for his
    e-mail address in order to send the final documents

    When the man replies that he has no e-mail, the adviser is
    stunned. "What, you don't have e-mail? How on earth have you
    managed to amass such wealth without the Internet, e-mail and e-commerce?

    Just imagine where you would be now, if you had been connected
    to the internet from the very start!"

    After a moment of thought, the tomato millionaire replied,

    "Why, of course! I would be a floor cleaner at Microsoft!"

  2. You say it's not religious, but there's certainly a lesson there. 8)

    Not a terrible joke either... :-D
  3. oh yeah there is a lesson to be learned there. You should all learn it. (cly what is the lesson?)
  4. Not that it says anything particularly about God, but I saw the lesson that we should always just trust in God because He's going to take good care of us. In fact, He'll even bless your socks off! :-D
  5. Amen me thinks
