A preacher and his wife wanted to have a child but didn't think they could afford on his small allowance from the church. He spoke to the congregation and they agreed that he could get a raise if he and his wife have children.
Six children later the congregation come to the preacher and tell him that they cannot afford to continue supporting him as his family is getting way too large. He says "But children are a gift from God!"
With that, an elderly lady come up and says "Rain is also a gift from God. But when we have too much, we wear rubbers!"
