Jokes

A preacher was visiting a congregation one Sunday — they as unknown to him as he was to them.  “This is a bit uncomfortable for all of us, I suppose,” he said to open.  “You’re out there wondering if I’m a good preacher.  I’m up here wondering if you know what good preaching is.”

That is not a story from my future autobiography, I assure you.

Would an idiot do that?

One of the speakers at my nephew’s recent graduation quoted Dwight Schrute, a character from The Office (because no one on television has said anything worth quoting in the last ten years).  Dwight said, “Whenever I’m about to do something, I ask myself, ‘Would an idiot do that?’’  And if they would, I do not do that thing.” 

As simple and irrefutable as that logic is, I can’t help thinking it is needful in our day and time.
