WWJD?

Friday Funnies will open a window to let in a little fresh laughter! Sure, some of the jokes will be corny, some may be just for "the girls," but whatever the case, or whatever your mood, sooner or later you're going to grin . . . or groan. Don't say I didn't warn you!
On Tuesday we talked about the dreadful art of buying a car. So today we've got to catch WWJD!

WHAT WOULD JESUS DRIVE?
(author unknown)

Most people assume WWJD is for "What would Jesus do?", but the initials really stand for "What would Jesus drive?"

One theory is that Jesus would tool around in an old Plymouth because the Bible says, "God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden in a Fury."

But in Psalm 83 the Almighty clearly owns a Pontiac and a Geo. The passage urges the Lord to "pursue your enemies with your Tempest and terrify them with your Storm."

Perhaps God favors Dodge pickup trucks. Moses' followers are warned not to go up a mountain "until the Ram's horn sounds a long blast."

Some scholars insist that Jesus drove a Honda but didn't like to talk about it. As proof, they cite a verse in John's gospel where Christ tell the crowd, "For I did not speak of my own Accord . . ."

Meanwhile, Moses rode an old British motorcycle, as evidenced by a Bible passage declaring that "the roar of Moses' Triumph is heard in the hills."

Joshua drove a Triumph sports car with a hole in its muffler: "Joshua's Triumph was heard througout the land."

And, following the Master's lead, the Apostles carpooled in a Honda: "The apostles were in one Accord . . ."

I tried to warn you!
Please check back tomorrow. Every Saturday is devoted to a time of rest and seeking God. ferree
