And on the second day in the town of Banstead in the province of Norfolk, Jesus led his disciples into the Temple. And the money changers in the Temple were filled with a great fear, having heard tidings from the shepherds that Jesus had driven their trade from the Temple in Jerusalem.
Fear not, said Jesus, for those reports were falsehoods spread by an arsonist and thief posing as a blogger. In helping the people of Banstead exchange their money for worthless golden pieces of paper called tickets, or Worthingtons, you do a great service and your leader whose luxurious house, registered in his wife's name of course, is a man who, as he reminds us daily, is most holy.
And Jesus praised those who helped the people of Banstead exchange their hard earned money for the worthless Worthington's as doing the Lord's work, saying that. Here in Banstead, there now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
And charity, or earley as it was known in the time of our forefathers, always begins at home. Or rather in the home belonging to one's wife.
And Jesus told the money changers that greed is good, that the Lord praises all that is good.
Some men may not praise those such as the money changers for a profit is often without honour in his own land, said Jesus, but what use is temporal honour? It is like the lillies of the field, it has no financial value. The meek shall inherit nothing, but the entrance to the Kingdom of the Lord is paved with Golden tickets.
Here endeth the lesson.
