A preacher was made aware that he had a deacon in his church who was from time to time known to cuss.
In his attempt to help the deacon overcome this terrible habit, the preacher decided he should spend some personal time with the deacon so they could have a long talk about the problem. The preacher decided to ask the deacon to go fishing thinking that might provide an opportunity to talk.
They were out in a boat and had their lines in the water when the preacher hooked a BIG one. It put up a mighty fight, but finally he reeled the fish up to the edge of the boat. It was the biggest fish the preacher had ever caught. But, just as the minister started to pull his catch into the boat, the fish slipped off the hook and got away.
Thoroughly disgusted, the preacher looked over and said, “Deacon, somethin’ needs to be said here!”
I’ve learned that life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.
Thought for the day
We can pray that our children will EXPERIENCE FELLOWSHIP with other believers: “My prayer is that they will be of one heart and mind, just as you and I are one, Father … and the world will believe you sent Me” (John 17:21, LB).
