Sunday Night Funnie

The Old Preacher
An old preacher was dying. He sent a message for his IRS agent and his Lawyer (both church members) to come to his home. When they arrived, they were ushered up to his bedroom. As they entered the room, the preacher held out his hands and motioned for them to sit on each side of the bed. The preacher grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled and stared at the ceiling. For a time, no one said anything. Both the IRS agent and Lawyer were touched and flattered that the old preacher would ask them to be with him during his final moment. They were also puzzled because the preacher had never given any indication that he particularly liked either one of them. Finally, the Lawyer asked, "Preacher, why did you ask the two of us to come?" The old preacher mustered up some strength, then said weakly, "Jesus died between two thieves, and that's how I want to go, too."

Hi Susan,

I stored that joke in my "Christian Humor" archives a few years ago. When I re-read it last night, it made me laugh all over again!

I found it in one of those "Clean Christian jokes" forums a while back when I was actively posting on message boards. Unfortunately, I neglected to save the link so I couldn't include a hat tip here for it.

Glad it brightened your day with a laugh!

Love in Jesus,

P.S. Your guest blogpost really touched Glynis' heart! Mine too! ;-)
