The Hamster and the Frog

A mangy looking guy walks into a very classy restaurant and orders a steak. The waitress says: “I’m sorry, but I don’t think you can pay for your meal.” The guy admits, “You’re right. I don’t have any money, but if I show you something you haven’t seen before, will you give me my supper?”

The waitress, both curious and compassionate, says, “Only if what you show me isn’t risque.”

“Deal!” says the guy and reaches into his coat pocket and pulls out a hamster. He puts the hamster on the ground and it runs across the room, directly to a piano. The hamster then proceeds to climb up the piano, and starts playing Gershwin songs.

The waitress says, “You’re right. I’ve never seen anything like that before. That hamster is truly good on the piano.” The guy sits back and enjoys a fine steak supper with all the trimmings.

Shortly thereafter, he asks the waitress, “Can I have a piece of that fine blueberry pie I see on the dessert cart over there?” “Only if you got another miracle up your sleeve”, says the waitress. The guy reaches into his coat again and pulls out a frog. He puts the frog on the table, and the frog starts to sing up a storm!

A stranger from a nearby table runs over to the guy and offers him $300 for the frog. The guy says “It’s a deal.” He takes the three hundred and gives the stranger the frog. The stranger runs out of the restaurant with dollar signs in his eyes and a big smile on his face.

The waitress says to the guy “Are you some kind of nut? You sold a singing frog for $300? It must have been worth millions!”

“No”, says the guy. “The hamster is also a ventriloquist.”

Who Are You Listening to?

Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 2 (NIV)

So this blog is a relatively simple topic that I had to write twice. Thankfully Cergie and Bishop were there to help me with the rewrite.

God loves everyone even if you do not believe in God He still loves you.

16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. John 3:16 (NRSV)

Here’s the crazy thing…the evil one, Satan, doesn’t want you to believe that he, Satan, exists. The evil one wants you to think that there is no Satan and therefore no God either there by completing the concept that there is no good or evil in the world that all things happen because of yours and everyone else decisions. In short Satan plays a trick on people and tells them there is no God and I do not exist however both do exist.

19 We know that we are God’s children, and that the whole world lies under the power of the evil one.  1 John 5:19 (NRSV)

I’m not sure but this particular scripture could apply to unbelievers as well as Christians or at least in my point of view it does.

The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps. Proverbs 16:9 (ESV)

I believe that God loves us so much that he still wants us to find Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior so we can come to God. So in that process God still guides our paths to Him all we have to do is believe and have faith. So then if you are not a believer of the Christian faith God will guide your path to find Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior and if you are a Christian then God will guide to the path that He has chosen for you in His Great Divine plan. Why? Because God loves everyone.

Dramatic Ending

This all leaves me with one question in mind. If you don’t believe in God are you listening to yourself or to…

Dun dun dun dunnnn (dramatic ending music)

God bless all that read this with His love, light, grace, mercy, and wisdom. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen.

21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Revelation 22:21 (KJV)
