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!
Getting What You Pay For
A feisty 70 year old woman had to call a furnace repairman. After a quick inspection the man put some oil into the motor and handed her a $70 bill for labor.
“Labor charges!” she exclaimed. “It only took you five minutes.”
The repairman explained his company had a minimum one-hour charge on every house call.
“Well, I want my remaining 55 minutes of labor,” the lady demanded, and she handed him a rake.
The repairman spent the next 55 minutes in her yard bagging leaves.
And now for the bonus …
Little Rodney, four years old, walked down the beach, and as he did, he spied a matronly woman sitting under a beach umbrella on the sand. He walked up to her and asked, “Are you a Christian?”
“Yes,” she replied.
“Do you read your Bible every day?”
She nodded her head, “Yes.”
“Do you pray often?” the boy asked next, and again she answered, “Yes.”
With that he asked his final question, “Will you hold my quarter while I go swimming?”
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Don’t allow your negative, limiting thoughts to overwhelm your possibilities. Use what is in your hand, renew your thoughts, dream again and be amazed as you witness what happens.
