One Sunday morning during preaching our Pastor came out of the pulpit and stood right in front of Jake and his six-year-old son, Hunter. Holding his wallet in hand, he asked Jake, “would you lie for me for a dollar?” Jake answered boldly, “No sir!”. “Would you lie for me for ten dollars?”, To which Jake replied, “No sir!”. Jake he asked, "would you lie for me for one hundred dollars?” Again Jake answered emphatically, “No sir, I would not!” Then he questioned again, “Jake, would you lie for me for a million dollars?” To which Hunter spoke up boldly and shouted out,  “Daddy, take the money and let’s run!” The congregation roared with laughter.
