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!
How High Can You Count?
A father and son were riding in their truck together one day and the son asked the father, “Dad, how high can you count?”
The father replied, “Well, I don’t know, son — how high can you count?”
The son immediately replied, “One thousand, five hundred, forty-two.”
The father said, “Why did you stop?”
The son shrugged his shoulders and said, “Well, church was over.”
And now for the bonus …
Recently a father and son found themselves short on time and looking for a parking space at the mall. “Angels, we’re in a bit of a hurry and would like very much to find a space near the entrance,” Dad said.
“I don’t know about all that, Dad,” Patrick said uneasily, launching Dad into a little sermon about how God always helps those who ask him. Suddenly, Patrick’s arm shot out and pointed toward the front of the mall. “Look! A space!” Sure enough, right by the entrance.
As Dad pulled in, Patrick wondered whether it was all just one big coincidence. “Then again,” he said, “maybe it was the angels. Check that out!” The license plate on the car across from us read “Amen.”
