Day 1027 – Walking on Water – Humor Unplugged


Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy

Welcome to Day 1027 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

Walking on Water – Humor Unplugged

Wisdom – the final frontier to true knowledge. Welcome to Wisdom-Trek where our mission is to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, and to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.

Hello, my friend, I am Guthrie Chamberlain, your captain on our journey to increase wisdom and create a living legacy.  Thank you for joining us today as we explore wisdom on our 2nd millennium of podcasts. This is Day Day 1027 of our trek, and it is time for our 3-minute mini-trek called Humor Unplugged. Our Thursday podcast will provide a short and clean funny story to help you lighten up and live a rich and satisfying life – something to cheer you and provide a bit a levity in your life.

We are told in  Proverbs 15:30, “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart; good news makes for good health.” We are also encouraged in Proverbs 17:22, “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” Consider this your vitamin supplement of cheer for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s funny, which is titled…

Walking on Water

For his entire life Dewey Winthrop, IV was told the story about how his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather had all walked on water on their 21st birthdays.

Feeling that this was his divine destiny to continue with this tradition, on his 21st birthday, Dewey and his younger brother Damon, headed out to the lake. “If they did it, I can too!” he insisted.

When Dewey and Damon arrived at the lake, they rented a canoe and began paddling. When they got to the middle of the lake, Dewey stepped off of the side of the boat…and immediately plunged beneath the surface and nearly drowned.

After being rescued by Damon, a furious and somewhat embarrassed Dewey headed for home.

When Dewey arrived back at the family home very distraught, he asked his grandmother for an explanation. “Grandma, why can’t I walk on water like my father, and his father, and his father before him?”

His sweet old grandmother took Dewey by the hand, then gently held his face and looked into his eyes and explained, “That’s because your father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were born in January, you were born in June, dear.” 

I hope that brought a smile to your face for today.

Our Thursday thought is “If you intend to walk on water, you must have a firm foundation.”

 Our Thursday Scripture Reference is Matthew 14:28, “Then Peter called to him, ‘Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.'”

Just as you enjoy these nuggets of humor, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
