Two Wives Are Too Many; Cast One Out!

Galatians 4:21-31

Jan. 2008

* Finding a mate for life can be a difficult task.

Joke - One Wish

A woman was walking along the beach when she stumbled upon an unusual old lamp. She picked it up and cleaned it off, and suddenly a Genie appeared. The amazed woman asked if she was going to receive the usual three wishes.

The Genie said, "Nope...due to inflation, constant downsizing, low wages in third-world countries, and fierce global competition, I can only grant you one wish. So...what’ll it be?"

The woman didn’t hesitate. She said, "I want peace in the Middle East. See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting with each other."

The Genie looked at the map and exclaimed, "Goodness sakes, lady! These countries have been at war for thousands of years. I’m good, but not THAT good! I don’t think it can be done. Make another wish."

The woman thought for a minute and said, "Well, I’ve never been able to find the right man. You know, one that’s considerate and fun, likes to cook and helps with the housecleaning, gets along with my family, doesn’t watch sports all the time, and is faithful. That’s what I wish for...a good mate."

The Genie let out a long sigh and said, "Let me see that map!"

The woman’s husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet she had stayed by his bedside every single day. One day, when he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer. As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears, "You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you stayed right here. When my health started failing, you were still by my side. You know what?"

"What dear?" She gently asked, smiling as her heart began to fill with warmth.

"I think you’re bad luck."

Jacob, age 92, and Rebecca, age 89, are all excited about their decision to get married. They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding and on the way they pass a drugstore. Jacob suggests they go in. Jacob addresses the man behind the counter:

’Are you the owner?’ The pharmacist answers yes.

Says Jacob: ’We’re about to get married. Do you sell heart medication?’ Pharmacist: ’Of course we do.’

Jacob: ’How about medicine for circulation?’

Pharmacist: ’All kinds.’

Jacob: ’Medicine for rheumatism, scoliosis? ’

Pharmacist: ’Definitely.’

Jacob: ’Medicine for memory problems, arthritis, jaundice?’

Pharmacist: ’Yes, a large variety. The works.’

Jacob: ’What about vitamins, sleeping pills, Geritol, antidotes for Parkinson’s disease?’

Pharmacist: ’Absolutely.’

Jacob: ’You sell wheelchairs and walkers?’

Pharmacist: ’All speeds and sizes.’

Jacob says to the pharmacist: ’We’d like to register here for our wedding gifts, please.’
