I went to the doctor for my yearly physical. The nurse starts with the basics. “How much do you weigh?” she asks.
“115,” I say.
The nurse puts me on the scale. It turns out my weight is 140.
The nurse asks, “Your height?”
“5 foot 8,” I say.
The nurse checks and sees that I only measure 5’5″.
She then takes my blood pressure and tells me it is very high.
“OF COURSE IT’S HIGH!” I scream, “When I came in here I was tall and slender! Now I’m short and fat!”
A cabbie is a fare-minded person.
Thought for the day
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6 (NLT)
The fact is bad things happen to good people. What David is teaching us is that God can take bad, evil, and difficult situations and bring something good out of them.
