Humor – September 30

Last night I was relaxing on the sofa watching TV when I heard my wife’s voice from the kitchen: “Oh sweetheart, what would you like for dinner, my love? Chicken, beef or lamb?”

I said, “Thank you, darling. I think I’ll have chicken.”

She replied, “You’re havin’ a peanut butter sandwich. I was talkin’ to the dog!”

If memory serves me right, it would be the first time.

“[The] Master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!” Matthew 25:21 NIV

Money is the acid test of your faithfulness. God uses it more than any other thing in your life to test your faith. Why? Because it’s the thing we have the hardest time with.

“Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am” Matthew 16:24 The Message

How do you let go and let God? First, you have to make Jesus the manager of your life.

A husband and wife are getting ready for bed. The wife is standing in front of a full-length mirror taking a hard look at herself.

“You know, love” she says, “I look in the mirror and I see an old woman. My face is all wrinkled, my chest sags to my waist, my rear is hanging out a mile. I’ve got fat legs and my arms are all flabby.”

She turns to her husband and says, “Tell me something positive to make me feel better about myself.”

He thinks about it for a bit and then says in a soft voice, “Well…there’s nothing wrong with your eyesight.”

“Let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes” Ephesians 4:23 NLT

The battle for sin, the battle to deal with those defects in your life that you don’t like, starts in your mind. If you want to change anything in your behavior or anything in your emotions, you start with your thoughts and your attitude.

Sitting on the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding drivers, a State police officer sees a car puttering along at 22 MPH.  He thinks to himself, “This driver is just as dangerous as a speeder!”  So he turns on his lights and pulls the driver over.

Approaching the car, he notices that there are five old ladies–two in the front seat and three in the back–wide-eyed and white as ghosts. The driver, obviously confused, says to him, “Officer, I don’t understand, I was doing exactly the speed limit! What seems to be the problem?”

“Ma’am,” the officer replies, “you weren’t speeding, but you should know that driving slower than the speed limit can also be a danger to other drivers.”

“Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the speed limit exactly 22 miles an hour!”, the old woman says a bit proudly.

The officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains to her that “22” was the highway number, not the speed limit.

A bit embarrassed, the woman grinned and thanked the officer for pointing out her error.

“But before I let you go, ma’am, I have to ask, is everyone in this car okay?  These women seem awfully shaken and they haven’t muttered a single peep this whole time,” the officer asks

“Oh, they’ll be all right in a minute officer.  We just got off Highway 119.”

I keep hearing on the radio that I can make big money flipping houses, but they never say how much I have to pay for the spatula.

“Throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception”  Ephesians 4:22 NLT

Change requires making choices. It’s not enough to dream of changing. It’s not enough to desire change. In order for you to change, you will need to make a decision. You must choose to change.

Nothing’s impossible for those who don’t have to do it.

“Start with GOD — the first step in learning is bowing down to GOD; only fools thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning” Proverbs 1:7 The Message

Have you noticed that the moment you establish a goal in your life, you start hearing people say, “Who do you think you are” or “It can’t be done” or “Forget about it”?

The antidote to the voices of doubt is to instead listen to the voice of God.
