HILARIOUS JOKES AND HUMOR ARCHIVES
Recently Lori took her children to a restaurant. Her six-year-old son asked if he could say grace. As they bowed our heads
he said, "God is good. God is great. Thank you for the food,
and I would even thank you more if Mom gets us ice cream for
dessert. And liberty and justice for all! Amen!"
Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby Lori
heard a woman remark, "That's what's wrong with this
country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God
for ice-cream! Why, I never!"
Hearing this, Lori's son burst into tears and asked her, "Did I
do it wrong? Is God mad at me?"
As Lori assured him that he had done a terrific
job and God was certainly not mad at him, an elderly
gentleman approached the table. He winked at Lori's son and

"Cross my heart," the man replied. Then in a theatrical
whisper he added (indicating the woman whose remark had
started this whole thing), "Too bad she never asks God for
ice cream. A little ice cream is good for the soul
Naturally, Lori bought her kids ice cream at the end of the meal
(How could she resist?). Her son stared at his for a moment and
then did something worth remembering the rest of life. He
picked up his sundae, and without a word, walked over and
placed it in front of the woman.
With a big smile he told her, "Here, this is for you. Ice
cream is good for the soul sometimes--and my soul is good
At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, "Who
is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?"
And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the
midst of them, and said, "Verily I say unto you, Except ye
be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not
enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall
humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in
the kingdom of heaven."
"And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name
receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little
ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a
millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were
drowned in the depth of the sea." -Matthew 18:1Previous Joke | Back to the Archives | Next Joke
