Government Farm Visit
A cocky Department of Agriculture representative stopped at a farm and talked with the old farmer; “I need to inspect your farm.”
The old farmer said, “You better not go in that field.”
The Agriculture representative said in a “wise” tone, “I have the authority of the U. S. Government with me. See this card, I am allowed to go wherever I wish on agricultural land.”
So the old farmer went about his farm chores.
Later, the farmer heard loud screams and saw the Department of Agriculture man running for the fence; close behind was the farmer’s prize bull. The bull was madder than a nest full of hornets, and the bull was gaining at every step.
“Help,” the rep shouted to the farmer, “what should I do?” he screamed helplessly.
The old farmer, hooking his thumbs in his overalls, called out: “Show him your card!”
If carrots are so good for the eyes, how come I see so many dead rabbits on the highway?
Thought for the day
Ecclesiastes 11:5 As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.
I don’t know. I don’t know! That has to be one of the hardest phrases for us to use. But when thinking about God and his ways, that’s really all we can say. We know about God only what he in his grace has chosen to reveal to us. He is the Mystery of mysteries. He is the supreme knowable Unknown. Yet what we do know of him, what he has revealed to us in Jesus, is not only mighty and awesome, but loving and merciful.
