A well-worn out N1000 note and a similarly distressed N10 note arrived at the Central Bank to be retired. As they moved along the conveyor belt to be burnt, they struck up a conversation.
The one thousand naira reminisced about its travels all over the country, “I’ve had a pretty good life” the one thousand naira proclaimed. “I have been to Lagos, Ibadan, Benin, Kano, and Abuja. The finest restaurants in Victoria Island, Kaduna, Abuja and Eastern Nigeria. Performances at Muson Centre and Glover Hall, the hottest nightclubs all over the country and even a cruise on the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.”
“WOW!” said the ten naira. “You’ve really had an exciting life!”
“So tell me, says the N1,000 note, “Where have you been throughout your lifetime?”
The N10 note replies: “Oh, me and my friend, N20, have been to the ECWA Churches, Apostolic and Methodist Churches, the Redeemed Christian Church, the Deeper Life Bible church, Baptist Church, the
C & S Church, CCC, the Lutheran Church, St Peter Catholic Church, etc.”
The N1,000 note interrupts, “What is a church?”
“It’s a place where believers in Jesus Christ gather to worship God in spirit and in truth.” replied the ten naira note.
“My masters never took me to Church” lamented the N1,000 naira note.
So, please, please and please, take N1,000naira notes to Church. They want to know Jesus too.
