    "The Preacher"

    An old preacher was dying. He sent a message for an IRS agent and a
    Lawyer
    (both church members), to come to his home. When they arrived, they
    were
    ushered up to his bedroom. As they entered the room, the preacher held
    out
    his hands and motioned for them to sit on each side of the bed. The
    preacher
    grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled and stared at the
    ceiling.

    For a time, no one said anything. Both the IRS agent and Lawyer were
    touched
    and flattered that the old preacher would ask them to be with him
    during his
    final moment. They were also puzzled because the preacher had never
    given any
    indication that he particularly liked either one of them. Finally, the
    Lawyer
    asked, "Preacher, why did you ask the two of us to come?" The old
    preacher
    mustered up some strength, then said weakly, "Jesus died between two
    thieves,
    and that's how I want to go, too."
