A REAL FLEECING
A Memphis church gave a $75,000 house (free and clear) to a couple who they thought were victims of Hurricane Katrina.
A very generous thing to do, except the couple, who obviously were scam artists, turned around and sold it for $88,000, and never even moved in.
Associated Press reported that members of the church were a bit upset.
Gee, ya think?
Even though I have great sympathy for the church that was just trying to be a good shepherd for God and watch out for others in His flock, it's hard to feel bad for a group who failed to set a few legal stipulations on the gift like ... you can't sell it!
Isn't there a Bible passage about being a good steward of your money?
