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 teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the magnet and what it does. The next day in a written test, she included this question intended as a followup on the previous day’s lesson: “My full name has six letters. The first one is M. I am strong and attractive. I pick up things. What am I?”
When the test papers were turned in, the teacher was astonished to find almost 50% of the students answered the question with the word “Mother.”
And now for the bonus …
A woman was self-conscious about going to the gym because she thought the pounds she had put on would make her stand out among the spandex-clad regulars. She chose a treadmill in the corner so she’d be inconspicuous.
However, as she exercised, her worst fears came true. At least a dozen people turned to stare at her periodically. She thought it might be her imagination, but then one woman even squinted to get a better look.
Mortified, she stepped off the machine to leave. When she turned around, she realized the gym’s only wall clock had been hanging just inches above her head.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: You don’t need to be excellent to start something. You need to start something to be excellent.
