Jacob age 85, and Rebecca age 79 are all excited about their decision to get married. They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding and on the way home they pass a drugstore. Jacob suggests that they go in.
He addresses the man behind the counter: “Are you the owner?”
The pharmacist answers: “Yes.”
Jacob: “Do you sell heart medication?”
Pharmacist: “Of course we do.”
Jacob: “How about medicine for circulation?”
Pharmacist: “All kinds.”
Jacob: “Medicine for rheumatism?”
Jacob: “Medicine for memory?”
Pharmacist: “Yes, a large variety.”
Jacob: “What about vitamins and sleeping pills?”
Jacob: “What about sugar diabetes. We both got bad cases.”
Pharmacist: “Oh, but of course. You name it with that condition and we have the works.”
Jacob: “You have loose bladder and gas pills?”
Pharmacist: “Yes, there are lots of those with plenty of generics.”
Jacob: “Perfect! We’d like to register here for our wedding gifts.”
Can I trade this job for what’s behind door number 2?
Thought for the day
“Sometimes it takes a painful experience to make us change our ways” (Proverbs 20:30 GNT).
Failure has its benefits. It teaches you what doesn’t work. Thomas Edison, the great inventor, said, “Don’t call it a failure. Call it an education!”
Failure also causes you to reevaluate what’s important in life. God uses failure as one way to get you to reflect on the direction of your life.
