$1,000,000 in Cash Found at Starbucks

Our staff feels very at home at Starbucks. We spend a lot of time having meetings there. But we’ve never stumbled upon such untold riches!

A little while back, Adam & I arrived a little early for a meeting and were waiting for our coffee to cool and the others to arrive.

Two women who’d been seated near us headed for the door, and a few newcomers headed toward their recently-vacated seats.

“Hey!” called one man after the women, “You left some cash!”

The woman looked oddly sheepish. “Oh, it’s okay. You can have it,” she replied.

The man backed away from the bill on the seat as if his integrity had been called into question. “Miss! Please take your money.”

The woman walked back across the store, seemingly embarrassed at the attention she was receiving, and muttered something to the man as she bent to pick up the cash.

“Oh,” he exclaimed as she was leaving. “It’s one of those.” The disdain in his voice was evident, and Adam and I knew immediately that we was referring to a million-dollar bill. I saw one for the first time a few weeks before when a girl at Panera received one as a “tip.” It looks exactly like U.S. currency (except for the ridiculous amount) and on the back it says:

The million dollar question: Will you go to Heaven? Here’s a quick test. Have you ever told a lie, stolen anything, or used God’s name in vain? Jesus said, “Whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her has committed adultery already with her in his heart.” Have you looked with lust? Will you be guilty on Judgment Day? If you have done those things God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart. The Bible warns that if you are guilty you will end up in Hell. That’s not God’s will. He sent His Son to suffer and die on the cross for you. Jesus took your punishment upon Himself – ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.’ Then He rose from the dead and defeated death. Please, repent (turn from sin) today and trust in Jesus, and God will grant you everlasting life. Then read your Bible daily and obey it.

Later, as we were leaving Starbucks, I saw that she’d placed it on one of the outside tables. I picked it up. So… I’ve got a million bucks for anyone that wants it.

What do you think about these tracts?

Are they effective? Accurate?
