Pray for My Hearing
The stranger approached the pastor after service and said, “I’d like you to pray for my hearing.”
The pastor placed his hands on the man’s ears and said a passionate, earnest prayer.
“How’s your hearing now?” the pastor asked.
Looking surprised, the man said, “Well, it’s not until tomorrow.” (Court Hearing)
Lesson on Honesty
The Sunday school teacher was just finishing a lesson on honesty.
“Do you know where children go if they don’t put their money in the collection plate?” the teacher asked.
“Yes ma’am,” a boy blurted out. “They go to the movies.”
The pastor’s college-age daughter came running to her in tears. “Mom, you gave me some terrible financial advice!”
“I did? What did I tell you?” said her mother.
“You told me to put my money in that big bank, and now that big bank is in trouble.”
“That’s one of the largest and best banks in the state,” she said. “There must be some mistake.”
“I don’t think so,” she sniffed. “They just returned one of my checks with a note saying, ‘Insufficient Funds’.”
