My Dad loved to tell funny stories and even hoped to publish his own little joke book one day. However, he died before he could do that.
I thought it might be fun to finish the project for him, so I gathered up all his notes and began. The trouble is that Dad relied on his memory and only recorded the punch lines! Why, even God starts at the beginning to tell the whole story!
Ezekiel, son of man, listen to this story about two sisters. (Ezekiel 23:2, CEV)
And he never leaves out the best parts.
I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. (Revelation 22:13, CEV)
And he records the punch line for all to see.
God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die. (John 3:16,CEV)
Prayer – Lord, Christ, our salvation is no joke, but a living, breathing answer to our desperate prayers. Thank you. Amen
