Did you hear about the farmer that decided to buy a chain saw?

A logging foreman sold him one that he guaranteed would cut down 15 trees in a single day.

A week later, a very unhappy farmer came back to report that the power saw must be faulty - it averaged only 3 trees a day. The foreman grabbed the saw, pulled the cord, and the saw promptly went “Bzzzzzzzz.”

“Hey” demanded the startled farmer, “what’s that noise?”


I wonder if we’re kinda like that farmer, we just don’t get it….

Can’t see how faith works - all we can say is “hey what’s that noise?” –loud complaining.

Can’t see how ineffective and inadequate our lives are when we trust our own goodness rather than the goodness of God shown through Jesus.
