God sends Smith check for $50

The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith today found a check in the mail for $50. It was from God. “I’m not sure why the almighty Lord has chosen to send me this money,” said Smith. “I assume it must be somehow important, being that it’s from God. Maybe it’s meant as a sign or a message, like ‘Keep up the good work, Brendan’. But then again, maybe He sent it to me as a test. God is tricky like that.” Written in the memo area of the check was but a single cryptic word: “Enjoy.” “That could mean anything,” noted Smith. Later in the day, Smith deposited the check into his Bank of America savings account. It is expected to clear in 7 to 21 days.
