A church member stopped the pastor and angrily complained that the church had
purchased five new brooms, an expenditure he thought completely unnecessary.
The pastor was surprised at the man's reaction, and mentioned it to the church
treasurer, who said, "It's understandable. How would you feel if you saw
everything you gave in the past year tied up in five brooms?"
