A pig and a chicken were walking by a church where a gala charity event was taking place. Getting caught up in the spirit, the pig suggested to the chicken that they each make a contribution.
"Great idea!" the chicken cried. "Let's offer them ham and eggs!"
"Not so fast," said the pig. "For you, that's a contribution. For me, it's a total commitment."
"A salvation that does not lead to service is no salvation at all."

My buddy applied for a job as an insurance salesman. Where the form requested "prior experience," he wrote "lifeguard." That was it. Nothing else.
"We're looking for someone who can not only sell insurance, but who can sell himself as well," said the hiring manager. "How does working as a lifeguard pertain to salesmanship?"
My friend replied, "I couldn't swim."
He got the job.
"Doctrine is not just a bundle of the church's own ideas, thoughts, and dreams about God, but is a declaring of what God Himself has shown and told us."

Sam and George go to the bank to cash their paychecks.
After Sam cashes his check George hands the young teller his check. He moves away from the teller, counts his change, and then goes back and says to the cashier, "Hey, you gave me the wrong change!"
The cashier says: "Sir, you stepped away from the counter. There's nothing I can do about it now."
George says nothing and joins Sam who says, "She's got some nerve. You should complain to the manager!"
"Oh no," George says. "In fact, I was going to tell her that I just thought she'd like to know she gave me ten dollars too much."
