If I were a Rich Man

Our friend S and family would never need to sing this song again.

On Friday evening they were at a Christmas Sunday School rehearsal when they got a phone call from a reputed international bank in which they have an account (me too) informing them that Rupees 4 crore and 90 lakhs about 1 million US dollars had been transferred into their account.

They were stunned as they knew of no such transaction. They rushed to the bank to get their account checked.After an hour it was discovered that a bank official had by mistake transferred all that money into S 's account as the name of the other guy resembled his. The manager severely reprimanded the young official and tried the calm everybody with cups of tea.

Oh sweet/cruel mistake, if it had happened to me I would have had to be rushed into ER.
This morning for my Bible meditation I read from Luke chapter 16 where Jesus said;
"No worker can serve two bosses;
He 'll either hate the first and love the second
Or adore the first and despise the second.
You can 't serve both God and the Bank".

Infact if you serve God, the Bank will serve you! ;-)

I'd have reported the mistake after 24 hours. I just need to know how it feels to sleep knowing I have around Rs.5 Crores in the bank. Sighhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
