Hello? This is the IRS

A pastor was at his desk working on his sermon when the phone rang.

The stern voice on the other end of the line said, "I'm calling from the Internal Revenue Service. Is a Jonathan Jones a member of your congregation?"

The pastor replied, "Yes! Jonathan is a faithful member of our church.  He attends church every Sunday with his family and volunteers anytime we need his help."

The IRS rep said, "Very interesting.  Do you happen to know if he supports your church financially?"

The pastor answered, "Well, I have no knowledge of the giving habits of our members.  But considering how faithful Jonathan is, I would think he financially supports our church."

Then the IRS rep asked, "Do you know if Mr. Jones gave the church a $10,000 gift?"

The pastor paused for a moment and then said, "If he hasn't, he will!"

Have a great day!
