One of the misconceptions about being a Christian is non-Christians think we don’t know how to have fun or have a sense of humor. Trust me, if the Big Guy can have a sense of humor when it comes to dealing with us mere mortals, so can we.
The difference for Christians is we don’t have to debase ourselves or others to generate a smile. Laughter at life or ourselves is a gift from God.
So, let’s smile a little!
A young couple came into the church office to fill out a pre-marriage questionnaire form. The young man, who had never talked to a pastor before, was quite nervous and the pastor tried to put him at ease. When they came to the question, “Are you entering this marriage of your own free will?” there was a long pause. Finally, the girl looked over at the apprehensive young man and said, “Put down ‘yes!'”
And now for the bonus…
A woman recently went on a trip and had to stop at a rest area on the Interstate. She took her keys, but left her purse and cell phone in her car, and went to the restroom. When she returned, her remote wouldn’t unlock the door and she panicked. “What am I going to do? My cell phone is still in the car and I can’t call Onstar!”
Another traveler nearby overhearing this asked, “Have you tried the key?”
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: You’re unique and one of a kind.
