Givin' Money To God

I was preparing to post for today when it was preempted by 4 of 4's comments. I now post her conversation....already in progress:

4 of 4:"So Dariah and Charlese, some people sneaked into their house and took their somethings and their stuff. They were really bad people. Why would they do that?"

Perp: "They did it because they wanted money probably."

4 of 4: "Why they want money for?"

Perp: (hmmmm. I don't want to get into a discussion about drugs, or wayward teens or pawn shops....) Maybe they were hungry and wanted money for food. It's not right that they stole something to get that money, but it happens."

4 of 4: "They should have just went to the bank machine."

Perp: "But you can't take money out if you don't have any money in your account. You have to put money in before you take it out!"

4 of 4: "Like the woman Jesus talked about who gave all the money she had away to the bank machine."

I guess this must be the modern version of the old parable.
