Scriptural Advice

A man had been in business for many years and his business was going down the drain and was full of debt. He was seriously contemplating suicide and he didn't know what to do. So he went to his Bishop to seek advice. He told his Bishop about all of his problems in business and asked the Bishop what he should do. The Bishop said "Take a beach chair and a Book of Mormon and put them in your car and drive down to the edge of the ocean. Go to the water's edge. Take the beach chair out of the car, sit on it and take the Book of Mormon and open it up. The wind will rifle the pages for a while and eventually the Book of Mormon will stay open at a particular page. Read the Book of Mormon and it will tell you what to do." The man did as he is told. He placed a beach chair and a Book of Mormon in his car and drove down to the beach. He sat on the chair at the water's edge and opened the Book of Mormon. The wind rifled the pages and then stopped at a particular page. He looked down at the Book of Mormon and knew immediately what he had to do. Three months later the man and his family came back to see the Bishop. The man was wearing a $1,000 Italian suit, his wife was all decked out with a full-length mink coat and the child was dressed in beautiful silk. The man handed the Bishop a thick envelope full of money and told him that he wants to donate this money as a fast offering to the church and thanked the Bishop for his wonderful advice. The Bishop was delighted. He recognizes the man and asked him what advice in the Book of Mormon brought this good fortune to him. The man replies: "Chapter 11."

P.S. For those unfamiliar with American Law, Chapter 11 refers to declaring bankruptcy and removing all of your debt. In modern years, some people have developed the practice as a strategic financial decision.
