A dejected man went to see his local clergyman (Priest, Rabbi or Minister) and told him his tale of woe.
“My business has failed, my wife left me, I lost my home, and I’m in bad shape,” he said. “What should I do?”
The wise man of the cloth suggested this: “Get a beach chair and go to the beach. Take along a bible. Then while you’re sitting on the beach chair, put the bible on your lap and open it up at about the center. Then, when the wind stops blowing the pages back and forth, look down at the page, and do what it says.”
The man agreed to do it.
About a year later, the formerly depressed man drove up in a fancy car, wearing an expensive suit, and looking to be in great spirits. He spoke to the man of the cloth again.
The holy man asked, “Did you do what I said?”
“Oh, yes indeed, I did. I let the wind blow the pages back and forth, and when it stopped, I looked down and read the page, and did what it said.”
“Well, what did it say?”
It said, “Chapter Seven.”
If you need an explanation of chapter 7, it’s declaring bankruptcy.
