I am off to visit some friends for the weekend, which means time is a little tight today. But I do have something to leave you with. Many consider the Bible to be dry, dull, and boring. And maybe a bit repetitive. But I am convinced there is humor to be found in the Bible.
Take, for instance, the story of Esther. Esther was a Jewish woman who found herself the queen of the Persian empire. She was the queen of Xerxes (you know, the weird looking king from the movie 300). The Bible tells us that one night Xerxes couldn’t fall asleep. So instead of turning on late night television, he had “the book of the chronicles, the record of his reign…brought in and read to him” (Esther 6: 1)
I don’t know about you, but whenever I have a hard time falling asleep I like someone to come in and read a book about all my great exploits.
