The story of the $20 bill

The story of the $20 bill

A speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill high in the air, waving it around. In the room of over 200 people he asked. “Who would like this $20 bill? Raise your hand if you would.” Hands started going up throughout the room. The speaker then said “I am going to give this $20 to one of you, but first, let me do this.” He then proceeded to crumple the 20 dollar note up in his hand, crushing it as hard as he could. He then asked the audience. “Who still wants it?” Still the hands were up in the air.

Sadness disturbs the mind and weakens judgment, it makes us suspicious, shady, shy and unable to lead others and even more so to lead ourselves.
Élisabeth Bruyère (Personal Notebook)
No one lights a lamp to cover it with a bowl or to put it under a bed. No he puts it on a lampstand so that people may see the light when they come in.
Luc 8, 16
Life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to be solved.
