Tithing reminder

Offerings had been down the past several Sundays and the preacher decided he had to do something to change the trend. The next Sunday, as the plate was being passed, he said, "Brothers and Sisters, I don't like to have to say this, but there is a man in the congregation who is having an affair with another parishioner's wife. And if he doesn't put at least fifty dollars in the collection plate this morning, I will reveal his name."

Later, as he counted the offering, the preacher found 18 fifty-dollar bills - and a twenty-dollar bill with a note clipped to it reading, "Hold your peace and I'll have the other thirty to you before sundown."
