A man had been down on his luck, strapped financially.
One day, he received $200 anonymously in the mail. He decided to tithe this blessing.
He was looking outside his window from the second floor and below stood this disrumpled, down-and-out looking fellow by the pay phone. Here was an opportunity to put his tithe to direct use.
So, he puts $20 in an envelope and writes on the outside of it "Don't despair," and drops it out the window.
The fellow looks up a little puzzled, but takes it and goes into the phone booth.
The next day, there was a knock on the door, and there he stands, handing him several hundred dollar bills.
"What's this?," the first fellow says.
The disrumpled-looking fellow answers, "It's your share. 'Don't Despair' paid 50 to 1!"
