Forgive your Enemies: A Joke
The preacher’s Sunday sermon was “Forgive Your Enemies”.
Toward the end of the service he asked his congregation, “How many
of you have forgiven your enemies?” About half held up their hands.
He then repeated his question. As it was past lunchtime, this time about 80 percent held up their hands.
He then repeated his question again. All responded, except one small elderly lady.
“Mrs. Jone’s,” inquired the preacher, “are you not willing to
forgive your enemies?”
“I don’t have any.” she replied, smiling sweetly.
“Mrs. Jones, that is very unusual. How old are you?”
“Ninety-three.” she replied.
“Oh Mrs. Jones, what a blessing and a lesson to us all
you are. Would you please come down in front of this congregation
and tell us all how a person can live ninety- three years and not
have an enemy in the world.”
The little sweetheart of a lady tottered down the aisle, faced the
congregation, and said: “I outlived the bitches.”
