The dying Preacher's last request!!!

The old preacher lay dying in the hospital. For years, he had faithfully
served the people of the nation's capital in Washington D.C. He motioned
for his nurse to come near.

"Yes, preacher?" said the nurse.

"I would really like to see President Bill and Senator Hillary Clinton
before I die," whispered the preacher.

"I'll see what I can do, preacher." replied the nurse.

The nurse sent the request to the Senate and waited for a response. Soon
the word arrived; the Clintons would be delighted to visit the preacher.
As they went to the hospital, Hillary commented to Bill, "I don't know
why the old preacher wants to see us, but it certainly will help our
images and might even get me elected President. After all, I'm IN IT TO
WIN IT." Bill agreed--it was a very good thing for her campaign once
they put out a press release about it.

When they arrived at the preacher's room, the old preacher took
Bill's hand in his right hand and Hillary's hand in his left. There was
silence and a look of serenity on the old preacher's face. Finally Bill
spoke. "Preacher, of all the people you could have chosen, why did you
choose us to be with you as you near the end?"

The old preacher slowly replied, "I have always tried to pattern my life
after our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ."
"Amen," said Bill.
"Amen," said Hillary.

The old preacher continued,
"He died between two lying thieves. I would like to do the same."

I enjoy the use of humor to make a point but I always encourage the user to maintain a proper testimony that treats people as Jesus said. The Lord blesses all that we say or do but He blesses our heart and attitude even more. God bless you as you testify of Him but remember if man is to have fault with you let it be due to our message not because of a mean spirit.
