I met with the administrative branch of an Evangelical church to talk about setting up their computer networks. One minister made a specific demand for a top-of-the-line server for just his department.
Me: I’m sorry, but from what I’ve gathered about your financials that’s very much out of your budget.
Client: That shouldn’t matter. I do God’s work.
The other ministers in attendance stepped in to help make him compromise, because they had network needs and were also doing God’s work.
Client: That doesn’t matter. Mine’s more important.
Client: God told me so.
