It will be my joy to preach about Noah and the trials he faced, but especially what his wife and family thought; and yet he obeyed God.
Laugh with me as we think about marriage and its similar problems:
A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor’s office. After his check up, the doctor called the wife into his office alone.
He said, “Your husband is suffering from a very serious disease, combined with horrible stress. If you don’t do the following, your husband can die. Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant and make sure he is in a good mood. For lunch, fix him a nutritious meal. For dinner, prepare an especially nice meal for him. Don’t burden him with chores.
If you can do this for at least ten months to a year, I think your husband will regain his health completely.”
On the way home, the husband asked his wife, “What did the doctor say to you?”
“You’re going to die,” she said.
And one other:
A couple drove several miles down a country road, not saying a word. An earlier
discussion had led to an argument, and neither wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a barnyard of mules and pigs, the husband sarcastically asked,
“Relatives of yours?”
“Yep,” the wife replied, “in-laws.”
