The Devil's Had It Long Enough

Tex Sample tells the story of his two uncles. One was a preacher and the other a bootlegger.  One Sunday the bootlegger came to church and made a show of peeling a $50 bill from a large roll of money and putting it in the plate.  At the end of the service, one of the more saintly old ladies of the church asked the preacher, “Pastor do you plan on keeping the Devil’s money?

To which the preacher replied, “Why yes, I think the Devil’s had it long enough!”
