                              Nick's G-Rated Humor List

	Sunday Stuff is a special NicksHumor e:mailing.
	It contains inspirational and/or humorous pieces
	that are somehow connected to the worldview of
	historic Biblical Christianity.

	If you prefer not to read these e:mailings, the
	words "Sunday Stuff" in the Subject line is your
	clue to hit the delete button.  But I hope you won't.

Today's Anagram
         Christianity  == Charity's In It
                == In It's Charity
           == It's In Charity

Blessed are those whom the Lord God has blessed.

"Starting with Jesus' Palm Sunday ride into Jerusalem, write
 an essay that assesses the significance of asses in the Bible."

What Would I Be?

A Sunday School teacher was teaching her class
about the difference between right and wrong.

"All right children, let's take another example," she said.
"If I were to get into a man's pocket and take his billfold
with all his money, what would I be?"

Little Johnny raises his hand, and with a confident smile,
he blurts out, "You'd be his wife!"

An Inspiration From:  Joke & Devotions

No temptation has seized you except what is common to man.  And
God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you
can bear.  But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way
out so that you can stand up under it.
				--1 Corinthians 10:13  NIV

TEMPTATION...  We've all been there.  Satan's silver bullet
designed just for our heart.  "No one will ever know, besides
it won't hurt anybody," some mysterious voice sounding like
our own whispers inside our head.  Even if those two statements
were true, and they never really are, it would matter because
something inside of us caved in to what we knew was wrong.  One
line of defense is to simply remind ourselves we are not alone
in this temptation -- others have faced it and conquered it, so
we can too, by God's help and the power of his Holy Spirit.
