There was this guy who went to the local Baptist church. He went down to the new Barbershop one day for a shave. As he was sitting in the chair, the barber said ” didn’t I see you down at the church last Wednesday night?” “Why yes” said the customer. It turned out that they both were going to the same church.
The customer said to the barber, ” I want a real good shave now, OK?”
The Barber got through and told the man it would be $20.00 for the shave. The customer thought “my goodness that is a lot for a shave”, but at the risk of offending his new found Brother, he reluctantly paid.
The next morning, the man got up and went in to get ready to go to work. He looked in the mirror and to his amazement, he didn’t need to shave. The next morning the man got up and went to get ready for work. “WOW! How can this be!”, he thought, when again he didn’t need to shave. On the third day after his visit to the barber, the man woke up again to find his face was as smooth as the first day. By now he was thinking that maybe he was wrong and needed to repent for thinking so wrong of his Brother, the barber. On the fourth day, when he woke up to find the same results, he rushed off to the barbershop.
“Brother, please forgive me”, the man said when he got into the shop. “I thought you charged me too much for my shave when I was here the other day”. The Barber looked at him with forgiving eyes and said, ” That’s all right Brother, you know what they say, “Once shaved, always shaved”!
The Joy of the Lord is your strength! SO LAUGH !!!
