A penny a day

I found three pennies today, a dime and a paper clip. I decided to not make picking up paper clips a thing. That would be weird. Other random weird things happened to me today. I won’t share them here, or probably anywhere else, which is too bad because they all happened to me when I was alone, so I am the only person who gets to laugh. I don’t think anyone should approve of the grammar in that last sentence. Ironically, apparently WordPress does because they have turned the readability of this post “good”. Really?? Okay, then…

Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” and kissed him. Jesus replied, “Do what you came for, friend.” Matthew 26

Who Jesus calls friends in the book of Matthew is fascinating. Sorry, that was a really random quote. Let’s end with something cheerful.

But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed there a man who was not wearing wedding clothes. He asked, “How did you get in here without wedding clothes, friend?” The man was speechless. Then the king told the attendants, “Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” For many are invited, but few are chosen. Matthew 22

I told you. Now let’s go for the cheerful one.

But he answered one of them, “I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarias. Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?” So the last will be first and the first will be last. Matthew 20

That is as cheerful as it gets. I want to talk to Matthew about his thought processes and/or sense of humor when I get to heaven. Just for the sake of curiosity. I just would like to know his reasoning.
