Deutero-humor

I was reading this morning in Deuteronomy and had a good chuckle when I read Deuteronomy 25:11-12 in The Message:

When two men are in a fight and the wife of the one man, trying to rescue her husband, grabs the genitals of the man hitting him, you are to cut off her hand. Show no pity.

Now if you're a woman reading that you're probably thinking that is really excessive. But I guarantee you if you're a man reading that, you're thinking, "Yeah, that sounds reasonable."

(Sorry. You can remove the man from being a youth pastor, but you can never remove the youth pastor from the man.)

Too funny. Hey, great sermon on Sunday. I feel like God's really blessed our church by bringing you to us.
