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!
The Doctor’s Story
Several years ago, a doctor was having one of those days when he wondered whether he should have stayed in bed. He was running late and had a headache. He entered the next examining room with a little less than his usual enthusiasm only to find his next patient had set him up. He had stretched out on the examining table, took the sheet that was provided and pulled it over his body. He then stuck a sign on his chest that simply stated: “TOO LATE!”
And now for the bonus — with a Christmas twist …
Professor Stein was lecturing his physics class. “Molecules can be split into atoms. Can molecules be broken down any further?”
A pupil replied, “I’m not certain, but a sure way to find out would be to mail some of them in a Christmas package marked ‘fragile.’ ”
