A story applicable to a scarcity mentality.
A man had a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital. He could receive little company and was not to be excited. While in the hospital a rich uncle died and left him two million dollars.
His family wondered how to break the news to him with the least amount of excitement. It was decided to ask the preacher if he would go and break the news quietly to the man. The preacher went and gradually led up to the question. The preacher asked the patient what he would do if he inherited two million dollars. He said, "I think I would give half of it to the church."
The preacher dropped dead.
