My friend likes to read his two young sons fairy tales at night. Having a deep-rooted sense of humor, he often ad-libs parts of the stories for fun.
One day his youngest son was sitting in his first grade class as the teacher was reading the story of the Three Little Pigs.
She came to the part of the story where the first pig was trying to acquire building materials for his home. She said, “…and so the pig went up to the man with a wheelbarrow full of straw and said ‘Pardon me, sir, but might I have some of that straw to build my house with?'”
Then the teacher asked the class, “And what do you think that man said?” and my friend’s son raised his hand and said, “I know! I know!
He said: ‘Holy smokes! A talking pig!'”
The teacher was unable to teach for the next 10 minutes.
People will accept your ideas much more readily if you tell them that Benjamin Franklin said it first.
Thought for the day
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” (Matthew 7:24 NIV)
The foundation of a house tells you how big the house can get. You can’t put a big house on a small or faulty foundation. It’ll collapse every time. The same is true for our lives. You can’t become what God wants you to be on a faulty foundation.
