Humor – April 20

EQUALITY

When my daughter, Kelli, said her bedtime prayers, she would bless every family member, every friend, and every animal (current and past). For several weeks, after we had finished the nightly prayer, Kelli would say, “And all girls.” This soon became part of her nightly routine, to include this closing.  My curiosity got the best of me and I asked her, “Kelli, why do you always add the part about all girls?”

She replied, “Because everybody always finish their prayers by saying ‘All Men.'”

My daughter says I’m nosy. At least, that’s what she wrote in her diary.

Thought for the day
“I know that your love will last for all time, that your faithfulness is as permanent as the sky” Psalm 89:2 

There’s a limit to human love. It wears out. It dries up.  That’s why you have to have God’s love in all your relationships if they are going to last. God’s love never wears out. God’s love is patient, persistent, and persevering.

A woman invited some people from church to dinner. At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said, “Would you like to say the blessing?”

“I wouldn’t know what to say,” the girl replied.

“Just say what you’ve heard Mommy say before,” the wife answered.

The daughter bowed her head and said, “Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”

End procrastination … tomorrow!

“If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?” (Luke 6:32a NIV)

His point is this: All of us can love those who love us back. Becoming a master lover means you learn to love the unlovable.

“Let everything you do reflect your love of the truth and the fact that you are in dead earnest about it”  Titus 2:7b

Even though you do’t understand all that is in the Bible – The truth is …. It is a map that always takes me where it promises.

“Morning Run”

The drill sergeant, making his morning announcements to a group of newcomers in a training camp, stated: “Today, gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news. First, the good. Private Johnson will be setting the pace on our morning run.”

With this the platoon was overjoyed, as Private Johnson was overweight and terribly slow. But then the drill sergeant finished his statement: “Now for the bad news. Private Johnson will be driving a truck.”

Two keys hang in an undertaker’s office – one for the organ in the chapel; the other for one of the cars in the garage.

Two small signs above the keys read “Hymn” and “Hearse.”

Thought for the day
“Jesus told him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me’” John 14:6

Jesus says, “I am the truth.” He doesn’t say truth is a religion, a ritual, or a set of rules and regulations. He says “I.” Truth is a person.  – Rick Warren

It’s Saturday …

and the sheep will be scattered.” Mark 14:27

It’s Friday …

“After walking a little farther away from them, Jesus fell to the ground and prayed that, if possible, he would not have this time of suffering. He prayed, “Abba, Father! You can do all things. Take away this cup of suffering. But do what you want, not what I want.””
‭‭Mark‬ ‭14:35-36‬ ‭NCV

A bus load of politicians was traveling down a country road when, all of a sudden, the bus ran off the road and crashed into a tree in an old farmer’s field. The old farmer, after seeing what happened, went over to investigate. He then proceeded to dig a hole and bury the politicians. 

A few days later the local sheriff came out, saw the crashed bus, and asked the farmer where all the politicians had gone. The old farmer said he had buried them. The sheriff then asked the old farmer, “Were they ALL dead?” The old farmer replied, “Well, some of them said they weren’t, but you know how them politicians lie.”

Resurrection life is certainly not a grave situation. Try it sometime.

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” Timothy 3:16 NIV

That means the Bible isn’t just a good idea. It is God’s Word to us.  So read and mediate on it daily.

Two children ordered their mother to stay in bed one Mother’s Day morning. As she lay there looking forward to breakfast in bed, the smell of bacon floated up from the kitchen.

But after a good long wait she finally went downstairs to investigate. She found them both sitting at the table eating bacon and eggs.

“It’s a surprise for Mother’s Day,” one explained, “we decided to cook our own breakfast.”

If evolution really works, how come Mothers only have two hands?

Thought for the day
“We love because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19 NIV).

When you say, “I don’t love God,” it’s because you don’t understand just how much he really loves you.
