On the Road to Forever
March 20, 2011 | 1,596 views | Post a comment

I think the world is so messed up that we all need a little lift of spirit, and the best way I know to lift my spirit is to have a good laugh.

So this week, with tongue in cheek, I think I'll present a little Bible history lesson. I'm still going to close with a sincere thought or two. Just remember the famous words of Abraham Lincoln: "The problem with quotes on the Internet is, you can never be certain they're authentic."

In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader called "Abraham of Com" did
take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot. And "Dot of Com" was a
comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she had often been
called "Amazon Dot Com." And she said to Abraham, her husband, "Why dost
thou travel far from town to town with thy goods when thou can trade without
ever leaving thy tent?"

And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddlebags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How might I do that my dear?" And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale and they will reply telling you which hath the best price. And then the sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."

Abraham thought long and hard and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever moving from his tent. But this success did arouse envy. A man named Maccabia did secrete (look it up, it means to hide) himself inside Abraham's drum and the young man did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. He was soon
discovered and was accused of insider trading.

And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed a band of rebels called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Siderites, or NERDS for short, trying to hack into the service and above all, no one noticed that the real riches were going to the drum maker, one
Brother William of Gates, who bought up every drum company in the land.

And indeed he did insist on making drums that would work only with Brother
Gates' drumheads and drumsticks. And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have
started is being taken over by others." And as Abraham looked out over the
Bay of Ezekiel, or as it came to be known, eBay, he said, "We need a name
that reflects what we are." And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner
Operators." "YAHOO!", exclaimed Abraham. And that's how it all got started.

[Matthew 19: 13-15; Mark 10: 13-16; Luke 18: 15-17]

I think God has the greatest sense of humor. I look at what he has made in wonder and amazement, some things common in appearance, some frightening and some only a mother can love. I stand in awe of the wonders of this world and yet I can see the humor involved in the task of making it all. I think God thoroughly enjoyed himself for six days as he put together the wonders we now enjoy. I can only imagine the smiling face of my redeemer, the laughter he exhaled as a child and as an adult. Children were drawn to Jesus and parents brought their babies and children for him to touch and bless. This is a man with an
inviting smile and open receptive arms for the innocence of children. He
listened to them and laughed with them. Jesus says we must become as little
children to enter the kingdom. We must be innocent, care free and dependent.

We need to laugh with God. TOM
