Uncle Jerome’s Daughter Marries – Story of the day

When Uncle Jerome’s daughter, Miss Esther, began seeing a young fellow, he and his wife were well pleased because Miss Esther was approaching 30 and they thought it was about time she got on with things.

The young fellow finally proposed and Miss Esther accepted. At the engagement dinner Uncle Jerome took his prospective son-in-law aside to ask him a few questions.

“Young fellow, I know you and Miss Esther will be very happy, but tell me, what kind of work do you do?”

“Well, sir,” the young man replied, “I’m spending all my time studying the scripture so I’ve not had time to really get a job yet. But I’m sure the Lord will provide for us.”

“And how do you plan to support my daughter without a job?”

“I have faith in the Lord and believe he will provide.”

“And when children come along, how will you give them the things children need?” Uncle Jerome persisted.

“God loves little children, and I’m sure he will provide,” the young man answered.

Later that night as he and Aunt Elsie were getting ready for bed, she asked him how the conversation with their prospective son-in-law had gone.

Uncle Jerome replied, “He has no education, no job and no prospects, but the good news is, he thinks I’m God.”
