Putting a $3 million lotto ticket in the offering plate

A mystery man won $3 million in the lottery, and then gave the winning ticket to his pastor at True North Community Church on Long Island.

“Our congregation has outgrown its facility,” Pastor Bert Crabbe said. “We’re having four services a week and adding a fifth. We needed another place to meet and I told the congregation, ‘Unless God drops a couple of million on us…’ I was joking, I wasn’t asking for it or praying for it. ‘Unless this happens we’ll end up renting a facility somewhere.’ And then this happened.”

Either this guy has a skull filled with stones or a heart of gold. Either way, good for him.
