When the preacher's car broke down on a country road, he walked to a nearby
roadhouse to use the phone. After calling for a tow truck, he spotted his
old friend, Frank, drunk and shabbily dressed at the bar. "What happened
to you, Frank?" asked the good Reverend. "You used to be rich."
Frank told a sad tale of bad investments that had led to his downfall. "Go
home," the preacher said. "Open your Bible at random, stick your finger on
the page, and there will be God's answer."
Some time later, the preacher bumped into Frank, who was wearing a Gucci
suit, sporting a Rolex watch, and had just stepped out of a Mercedes.
"Frank," said the preacher, "I am glad to see things have really turned
around for you."
"Yes, preacher, and I owe it all to you," said Frank. "I opened my Bible,
put my finger down on the page and there was the answer....Chapter 11."
