Midweek Mirth

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!

Delayed Flight

A passenger on a Southwest flight says he once faced a flight delay just before they boarded. A flight attendant picked up the microphone and announced: “We’re sorry for the delay. The machine that normally rips the handles off your luggage is broken, so we’re having to do it by hand. We should be finished and on our way shortly.”

And now for the bonus …

Divine Assistance

Two men were stranded on an island. One man just sat down under a tree and did nothing. The other man looked all over the island. When he came back, he said, “There is nothing here — no food, no shelter, no nothing. We’re going to die.”

The first man said, “I make $10,000 a week,” and continued to sit.

The other man again looked all over the island and came back dejected. “We’re going to die,” he said.

The first one again replied, “I make $10,000 per week.” And he sat.

The other man took one more look all over, returned, and said, “There’s no way we will ever get off this island. We’re going to die.”

Once again the first man replied, “I make $10,000 per week, and I tithe. My pastor will find me.”

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: What you say affects not only you, but it affects others as well. The words that come out of your mouth go into your ears as well as other people’s, and then they drop into your soul where they give you either joy or sadness, peace or upset, depending on the type of words you have spoken. — Joyce Meyer.

  1. I wonder if God had to smile
    at the names that Adam gave
    to the animals on His behalf;
    I mean, really, ‘crocodile’?
    Some names are simple, like the ‘ant’,
    but some not easy in the least,
    like the mighty elephant,
    and the panicked wildebeest.
    When he saw the giant on the charge,
    there perhaps was a finer
    name than one loomed just as large,
    ‘stead of ‘rhinoceros’, just ‘rhino’.
    I’m impressed with the responsibility,
    but glad Adam did not name ME.


I'd love to hear your thoughts on this subject!
