There were two men shipwrecked on an island. The minute they got onto the island, one of them started screaming and yelling, "We're going to die! We're going to die! There's no food! No water! We're going to die!"
The second man was propped up against a palm tree and acting so calmly that it drove the first man crazy.
"Don't you understand? We're going to die!"
The second man replied, "You don't understand. I make $100,000 a week."
The first man looked at him quite dumbfounded and asked, "What difference does that make? We're on an island with no food and no water! We're going to DIE!"
The second man answered, "You just don't get it. I make $100,000 a week, and I tithe 10 percent on that $100,000 a week. My pastor will find me!"
