|After many years of not seeing each other, two old friends met for a drink. John had attended college and was very successful. Sam had not attended college and never had much ambition or much of a work ethic. John asked his friend, "How has everything been going for you?"
Sam replied, "Well, one day I opened my Bible at random, closed my eyes, and put my finger on a word. That word was 'oil', so I invested in oil and made a fortune. One day I decided to try that again, so I put my finger on a word and it was 'gold.' I invested in gold and the mines really produced. Now I'm as rich as Rockefeller!"
John was so excited by his friend's story that he rushed back to his hotel, grabbed the Gideon Bible out of the bedside table, and dropped his finger on a page.
He opened his eyes to find his finger resting on these words: "Chapter Eleven."
