Joke: Bible reading

How's your Bible reading?

Following are the top ten signs that you may not be reading your Bible enough . . .

10. The Preacher announces the sermon is from Galatians . . . and you check the table of contents.

9. You think Abraham, Isaac & Jacob may have had a few hit songs during the 60's.

8. You open to the Gospel of Luke and a WWII savings bond falls out.

7. Your favorite Old Testament patriarch is Hercules.

6. Your favorite Bible verse is "Cleanliness is next to godliness."

5. You become frustrated because Charlton Heston isn't listed in either the concordance or the table of contents.

4. Catching the kids reading the Song of Solomon, you demand: "Who gave you this stuff?"

3. You think the Minor Prophets worked in the quarries. (think about it)

2. You keep falling for it every time when the preacher tells you to turn either to First Condominiums or Third Peter.

And the number one sign you may not be reading your Bible enough:

1. The kids keep asking too many questions about your usual bedtime story: "Jonah the Shepherd Boy and His Ark of Many Colors."
