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.
Here’s this week’s edition of Midweek Mirth … so let’s smile a little!
While putting her four year old daughter to bed one evening, a mother read her the story of the prodigal son. They discussed how the young son had taken his inheritance and left home, living it up until he had nothing left. Finally, when he couldn’t even eat as well as pigs, he went home to his father, who welcomed him.
When they finished the story, mom asked her daughter what she had learned. After thinking a moment, she quipped, “Never leave home without your credit card!”
Lest we forget to laugh, here is this week’s bonus …
I need to practice social-distancing from the refrigerator.
Wearing a mask inside your home is now highly recommended. Not so much to stop COVID-19, but to stop eating.
I hope they give us two weeks’ notice before sending us back out into the real world. I think we’ll all need the time to become ourselves again. And by “ourselves” I mean lose 10 pounds and cut our hair.
I stepped on my scale this morning. It said: “Please practice social distancing. Only one person at a time on scale.”
Not to brag, but I haven’t been late to anything in over six weeks.
You know those car commercials where there’s only one vehicle on the road? That hasn’t seemed so unrealistic recently.
The dumbest thing I’ve ever bought was a 2020 planner.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: And keep a sense of humor. It doesn’t mean you have to tell jokes. If you can’t think of anything else, when you’re my age, take off your clothes and walk in front of a mirror. I guarantee you’ll get a laugh. – Art Linkletter
