HANNAH 1:1-7

Today's post comes to you from the Bible. I mean the Pie-bull. I mean, my wife.

"As Jesus was heading out, a man ran up to him and shook his hand.

'Excuse me, sir,' he said, 'but I was wondering what I should do in order to attain the resurrection.  I know you're a good teacher.'

'Why call me good?' replied Jesus.  'No one's good except God alone.  You know the commandments: "Don't kill.  Don't commit adultery.  Don't steal.  Don't swear falsely.  Don't defraud.  Honour your father and mother."'

'But sir,' he said, 'I've kept all of them since I was a kid.'

Jesus looked hard at him, and loved him.  'Oh, and one thing I forgot,' he said.  'Delete your Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, blog, Pinterest, e-mail, LinkedIn, Myspace, and invite your next door neighbours over for dinner.'

At that, his face fell, and he went off sadly.  He was very plugged-in."
