Have you heard the story about the famous art collector? He was strolling around downtown when he noticed a mangy cat lapping milk from a saucer in the doorway of a store.

Many might ignore the scene, but something caused him to look a second time. Almost instantly he recognized the saucer as an extremely old and very valuable piece of pottery, and so he decided to purchase the saucer.

Casually he walked into the store and up to the storeowner, where he offered to buy the cat for two dollars.

"I'm sorry, but the cat isn't for sale," the storeowner replied.

"Please, I need a cat around the house to catch mice. I'll pay you twenty dollars for that cat," the collector said.

The owner looked thoughtful for a moment, and then said "Sold."

After the famous art collector had received the cat from the owner, the collector said,

"Hey, for the twenty bucks I wonder if you could throw in that old saucer. The cat's used to it and it'll save me from having to get a dish."

The storeowner replied, "I'm sorry sir, but that's my lucky saucer. So far this week I've sold thirty-five cats."

Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a "fool" so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight. As it is written: "He catches the wise in their craftiness"' and again, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile." -1 Corinthians 3:18
