Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy

Welcome to Day 1307 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom

What Did You Say? – 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, 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 1307 of our Trek, and time for a 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:

What Did You Say?

Mr. Smith, an elderly gentleman, had serious hearing problems for a number of years. His family begged him to go see an audiologist, but he continued to refuse to go, thinking that his hearing wasn’t that bad. Finally, he decided maybe it was time, but he was too embarrassed to admit it to his family, so he made an appointment himself. On his appointment date, He went to Dr. Jones, the best hearing specialist in town. Dr, Jones was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed Mr. Smith to hear 100%.

About a month later, Mr. Smith went back to see Dr. Jones for a follow-up visit to have his new hearing aids checked and adjusted if needed. Dr. Jones checked him out and proudly proclaimed, “Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again.

With a bit of a smile on his face, Mr. Smith confessed, “Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!I hope that brought a smile to your face today. If it did pass your smile onto some else, we all could use a good smile. Our Thursday thought is: Blindness separates us from things, but deafness separates us from people.

Helen Keller

Romans 10:17

So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.
