A Christian And an Atheist Talking About Their Harvest

There is a story of two farmers, one was a believer and the other an atheist. When harvest time came the atheist boasted how his family had not been sick and his fields were rich with harvest. The Christian family had been sick and his crop was poor. The atheist said, “I thought you said it pays to believe in God.” “It does pay,” replied the Christian, “but God doesn’t always pay his people in September!” (Source Unknown, Lou Nicholes - Missionary/Author).
