Joke- Take the Poison
A man goes to see the Pastor. "Pastor, something terrible is happening and I have to talk to you about it."
The Pastor asked, "What’s wrong?" The man replied, "My wife is poisoning me."
The Pastor, very surprised by this, asks, "How can that be?" The man then pleads, "I’m telling you, I’m certain she’s poisoning me, what should I do?" The Pastor then offers, "Tell you what. Let me talk to her, I’ll see what I can find out and I’ll let you know."
A week later the Pastor calls the man and says, "Well, I spoke to your wife. I spoke to her on the phone for three hours. You want my advice?"
The man said yes and the Pastor replied, "Take the poison."
People with grudges are like this man’s wife- full of poison
