AM I MY BROTHER’S KEEPER?
Have we become an insular society to the point where we leave for work at mornings, return at evenings and did not notice the new neighbour who has been living among us for the past month? Did we stop to give someone who is getting wet in the rain a lift on our way? Did we see a fellow church member walking in the hot sun struggling with a baby and did not stop to give those two human beings a lift to church? A little self examination is all that is needed here. Am I my brother’s keeper or do I only talk the talk and not walk the walk? Let us be honest with ourselves, look in the mirror and change who we see looking back at us.
BABIES BABIES EVERYWHERE
Four expectant fathers pace in a hospital waiting room while their wives are in labor. The nurse enters and tells the first man, “Congratulations, you’re the father of twins.”
“What a coincidence,” the man says. “I work for the Minnesota Twins baseball team.”
A little later, the nurse returns and tells the second man, “You are the father of triplets.”
“That’s really an incredible coincidence,” he answers. “I work for the 3M Corporation.”
An hour later, the nurse tells the third man that his wife has just given birth to quadruplets.
The man says, “I don’t believe it! I work for the Four Seasons. What a coincidence!”
After hearing this, everyone’s attention turns to the fourth guy, who has just fainted. He slowly regains consciousness and whispers, “I should have never taken that job at Millennium Computers.”
