"A little girl with a big heart"
This was the title of a little side article in today's
Witchtower study. Every year they always have
a story of a child sending the Witchtower Babel and
Trick Sobriety their dimes and nickels. Well this
little article had a different twist. I am going to write
it down and see if you can see what point they are
trying to make. Here we go:
"Recently, on her own initiative, a nine year old girl
in Brazil separated the money she had saved into two
parts---18 dollars and 25 dollars. She put the smaller
amount into the contribution box at the local Kingdom
Hall to help cover expenses. Then she forwarded the
larger portion to the branch office of Jehovah's Witnesses,
along with a short letter."
Since it has been printed in the WT!, she could sue the Watchtower for misusing her money when she grows up???
Doesn't the story then continue on something like ...
"Then, her parents followed suit with the $35,000 they had saved up, dividing it likewise into parts --- $30,000 and $5,000. They forwarded the smaller amount to the branch office, and the larger amount straight to WW HQ in Brooklyn."
All the dimes and nickels saved by those of you who have them need to go to the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, notice the little child giving all.
Was the little girl institutionalized for fiscal insanity?
Yeah, I thought they were going to share that she skipped buying some candy and sent the money to the WTS. (see the old widow who gave her 2 leptas)
But this girl gave a ton of money, maybe more than some JW's make in a month!
The lesson the GB wants us to learn?
"Kids, go break open your banks, and your siblings as well, in fact, can you borrow your parents credit cards without them noticing?"
I've never heard that much money and all of it being sent to the WTS.
And what happened to giving your gifts in secret? Is somebody doing some boasting here, trying to get 'My kids can give more' contest going?
Dissed, I've got big numbers for you....
How about $100,000.00 and an additional 20 percent when its all over.
Don't ask me, cause I can't stand to talk about it.
Restrangles - "How about $100,000.00 and an additional 20 percent when its all over.
Don't ask me, cause I can't stand to talk about it."
Hey, its hurts me too much to even ask. $100,000????? That's ridiculous!
and thats from an Apostate's widow....go figure. Edited to add: An old girl with a big heart and bank account from a man who spent his entire life serving the JW's and left after 1975.....
