How Much

Satan and Jesus were having a conversation. Satan had just come from the Garden of Eden, and he was gloating and boasting.

“Yes, sir, just caught me a world full of people down there. Set me a trap, used the bait I knew they couldn’t resist.
And I Got Um all!”

“What are you going to do with them?” Jesus asked.

Satan replied,
“Oh, I’m gonna have fun!
I’m gonna teach them how to marry and divorce each other,
how to hate and abuse each other,
how to drink and smoke and curse.
I’m gonna teach them how to invent guns
and bombs and kill each other.
I’m really gonna have fun!”

How Much

“And what will you do when you get done with them?” Jesus asked.

“Oh, I’m not going to do anything with them. After I have taught them all I know, they will take care of the rest. All I will need to do is sit back and enjoy.” Satan glared proudly.

“How much do you want for them?” Jesus asked.

“Oh, you don’t want these people.
They ain’t no good.
Why, you’ll take them and they’ll just turn their backs on you. They’ll spit on you, and they’ll curse you !
You don’t want those people!!”

“How much?” Jesus asked again.

Satan looked at Jesus and sneered,
“All your blood, and all your tears,
you will have to give your life to get these people.”

Jesus said, “It’s a Deal!”
