A young lady came running in tears to her father. “Dad, you gave me some terrible financial advice!” she cried.
“I did? What did I tell you?” said the dad.
“You told me to put my money in that big bank, and now that big
bank is in trouble.”
“What are you talking about? That’s one of the biggest banks in
the world,” he said. “Surely there must be some mistake.”
“I don’t think so,” she sobbed. “They just returned
one of my checks with a note, saying, ‘insufficient funds!’”
(There will always be insufficiency of funds if we trust our
own goodness. “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God” [Rom.
3:23]. Our sufficiency is only in Christ.)
