Just before the funeral services, the undertaker came up to the very elderly widow and asked, “How old was your husband?”
“98,” she replied. “Two years older than me.”
“So you’re 96?” the undertaker asked.
She responded, “Hardly worth going home, is it?”
Missionaries do Emmanuel labor.
Thought for the day
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Most of us live in cozy places where belief is tolerated and Christians are just considered a bit out of touch. Be thankful your life makes enough difference to be noticed!! But at the same time, we need to pray for other believers throughout the world who are undergoing persecution for their faith.
