Be Prepared

Just before a long holiday weekend, a pastor waited in line to have his car filled with gas at a local full-service station. A pair of pump jockeys worked quickly at the popular stop, but the lines were long, and the pastor had to wait some time before one of the attendants motioned him to a pump.

“Pastor, I’m sorry you had to wait so long,” the young man said, “but today it seems as if everyone waited until the last minute to get ready for a long trip.”

“I know what you mean,” the minister chuckled, “it’s the same in my business.”

A Sunday School teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her 6-year-olds. After explaining the commandment to “honor thy father and thy mother,” she asked, “Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?”

Without missing a beat, a bright student, the oldest boy in a family, quipped, “Thou shalt not kill.”
