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!
The Amazing Hearing Aid
Morris realized he needed to purchase a hearing aid, but he felt unwilling to spend much money. “How much do they cost?” he asked the salesperson.
“That depends,” he said. “They run from $2 to $2,000.”
“Let’s see the $2 model,” said Morris the miser.
The salesperson put the device around Morris’ neck. “You just stick this button in your ear and run this little string down to your pocket,” he instructed.
“How does it work?” asked Morris.
“For $2 it doesn’t work,” the salesperson replied. “But when people see it on you, they’ll talk louder!”
... and now for the bonus …
In the room the curtains were drawn: the rest of the furniture was real.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Each of us has a spark of life inside us, and our highest endeavor ought to be to set off that spark in one another. — Kenny Ausubel
