A guy goes into a fancy lounge wearing a shirt open at the collar, but the bouncer tells him he needs a necktie to get in.
The guy doesn’t have a necktie handy, so goes out to his car and gets his jumper cables. He ties these around his neck, manages to fashion a fairly acceptable looking knot, and lets the ends dangle free.
He goes back to the lounge. The bouncer looks him up and down and then says, “Well, okay, I guess you can come in. Just don’t start anything.”
I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m a reasonably intelligent person who does moderately stupid things on a semi-regular basis.
Thought for the day
Hebrews 12:1 NLT says, “Let us strip off every weight that slows us down”
Weights aren’t bad. They’re not sinful. They’re just unnecessary. It could be a job, a relationship, or a hobby. It’s something that slows you down from what God wants from your life. And it’s not worth it.
