Humor – July 31

The Sunday School teacher was describing how Lot’s wife looked back and turned into a pillar of salt.

Little Johnny interrupted, “My dad looked back once, while he was driving,” he announced triumphantly, “and he turned into a telephone pole!”

I submitted ten puns to a contest, hoping one might win the prize, but no pun in ten did.

Isaiah 43:7 says, “Bring to me all the people who are mine, whom I made for my glory, whom I formed and made” (NCV).

If you didn’t bring glory to God, you wouldn’t be alive. God made you to enjoy you!

I have so many problems that if a new one comes along today, it will be at least two weeks before I can worry about it.

Romans 6:13b, “Give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life. So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God” (NLT).

Maybe you already know what you’re good at, but you’re just not using it for the Lord. You’re using it for yourself. You need to humble yourself and dedicate to the Lord every gift you have.

A lawyer is walking along the beach and spots a glass bottle in the sand. When he opens it he discovers a genie inside.

Genie: Sir, I will grant you three wishes, but you must understand that whatever you wish for, every other lawyer in the world will get double.

Man: Hmmm. Ok. First I’d like $100 million.

G: No problem, but just understand that each lawyer got $200 million.

M: I understand. For my second wish, I’d like a new Porsche. In red, please.

G: Fine. It is in your garage. And just FYI, every lawyer in the world just got two of the same.

M: That’s ok with me.

G: And for your third wish?

M: Well, I always did want to donate a kidney . . .

“There are different spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit gives them. There are different ways of serving, and yet the same Lord is served. There are different types of work to do, but the same God produces every gift in every person” (1 Corinthians 12:4-6 GW).

When you know what you’re shaped to be, then you know what you ought to be, and you can start focusing on that and make better use of your life.

A Scout Master was teaching his boy scouts about survival in the desert. “What are the three most important things you should bring with you in case you get lost in the desert?” he asked.

Several hands went up, and many important things were suggested such as food, matches, etc. Then one little boy in the back eagerly raised his hand.

“Yes Timmy, what are the three most important things you would bring with you?” asked the Scout Master.

Timmy replied: “A compass, a canteen of water, and a deck of cards.”

“Why’s that, Timmy?”

“Well,” answered Timmy, “the compass is to find the right direction, the water is to prevent dehydration…”

“And what about the deck of cards?” asked the Scout Master impatiently.

“Well, sir, as soon as you start playing Solitaire, someone is bound to come up behind you and say, ‘Put that red nine on top of that black ten!'”

The speed in which a woman says “Nothing” when asked, “What’s wrong?” is adversely proportional to the severity of the storm that’s coming.

Ecclesiastes 10:10, “If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed, but skill will bring success” (NIV).

That means practice, improve, sharpen, and develop. Any ability that God has given you can be increased with use

A young man bought the fastest motorcycle that money could buy–a Yamaondason 2000 SP 8.2. It was the most expensive bike in the world and cost him $32,150.99. The first day he bought the new bike he took it for a spin. While doing so he stopped at a red light at the city limits.

An old man pulled up next to him on a moped. The old man looked over at the bright, red, shiny, sleek new motorcycle and asked, “What kind of scooter ya got there, sonny?”

The young man replied, “It’s a Yamaondason 2000 SP 8.2. It costs $32,150.99 out the door.”

“That’s a lot of money,” said the old man, shocked. “Why does it cost so much?”

“Because this bike can go 200 mph!” exclaimed the young man.

The old fella asked, “Can I take a closer look at it?”

“Sure,” replied the new owner.

From his moped the old man leaned over and took a good look at the very fast-looking machine. Just then the light changed, so the young man decided to show the old guy what his new motorcycle could really do. He gave it full throttle and within 30 seconds the speedometer read 199 mph.

Suddenly, he noticed a dot in his rear-view mirror. It seemed to be getting closer! He slowed a little to see what it could be and suddenly, WHHHOOOSSSHHH! Something whipped passed him going much faster.

“What could be faster than my 2000 SP 8.2?” the young man thought to himself.

Then just ahead of him, he saw the dot coming back at him. WHHHOOOSSSHHH! It went flying by him again going in the opposite direction! It almost looked like the old man on the moped! How could that be?, thought the young man. Again he saw the dot in his mirror! WHHHOOOSSSHHH! KABBBLAMMM! The moped slammed into the rear of the shiny new 2000 SP 8.2, demolishing the read end of the young rider’s pride and joy. The young man jumped off and saw it was the old timer.

Of course the moped was crushed and the old man was lying on the ground pretty beat up. The young man ran over to him and asked,  “Are you hurt? Is there anything I can do for you?

The old man groaned and replied, “Yes, could you unhook my suspenders from your side-view mirror?”

The real measure of your wealth is how much you would be worth if you lost all your money.

Romans 12:1b says, “Offer yourselves as a living sacrifice to God, dedicated to his service and pleasing to him” (GNT).

Say, “God, you gave me these abilities. Now I’m going to give them back to you. I want to use them for the purpose for which you gave them to me.”

Job 32:7, “The longer you live, the wiser you become” (The Message).

Some years ago, there was a Mensa convention in San Francisco. Mensa, as you know, is a national organization for people who have an IQ of 140 or higher.

Several of the Mensa members went out for lunch at a local cafe. When they sat down, one of them discovered that their salt shaker contained pepper, and their pepper shaker was full of salt.

How could they swap the contents of the two bottles without spilling any, and using only the implements at hand?

Clearly, this was a job for Mensa minds.

The group debated the problem and presented ideas and finally, came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw , and an empty saucer.

They called the waitress over, ready to dazzle her with their solution.

“Ma’am,” they said, “we couldn’t help but notice that the pepper shaker contains salt and the salt shaker.”

But before they could finish the waitress interrupted, “Oh, sorry about that.”

She leaned over the table, unscrewed the caps of both bottles and switched them.

There was dead silence at the Mensa table.

The difference between “gossip” and “news” is whether you hear it or tell it.

“Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you; if not, you have failed the test of genuine faith” (2 Corinthians 13:5 NLT).

An unexamined experience is worthless.

A pastor’s son, a musician’s son, and an artist’s son were talking.

The artist’s son said, “My dad can scribble something on a piece of paper, call it a picture, and sell it for $100.”

The musician’s son said, “Oh, that’s nothing! My dad can scribble something on a piece of paper, call it a song, and sell it for $1000.”

The pastor’s son looks at them and said, “You guys don’t know anything!!! My dad can scribble something on a piece of paper, call it a sermon, and it takes like 6 guys to gather all the money!”

1 Samuel 16:7b, “The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (NIV).

God accepts responsibility because he has a bigger perspective than any human. He can see what we can’t see. And he loves each of us for our potential to do the great things he has planned for us, regardless of our handicaps.
