The Mustard Seed
A boy who loved to go fishing with his dad was reciting the 23rd Psalm in Sunday School. When he got to the fourth verse, he said: "Thy rod and Thy reel, they comfort me."

That reminds me, there's a sign in Rehoboth Beach in front of two stores:
The stores? A bait shop and a hair salon.
Sign on church:
Fatherly Wisdom - Brotherly Love -
Dad dished up some ice cream for his sons, 7 and 5 years old. He was upset to see them fighting over who should get the first bowl.
So Dad decided to teach them a lesson. "If Jesus were here, he would say, "Let my brother have the first bowl. I can wait."
The 7 year old then took the high road, saying to his brother, "I'll let you be Jesus."
Why One Father Grumbled:
He returned to his parked car and found the front crumpled, but the car that hit his car had gone. His spirits brightened, but briefly, when he saw a note under his windshield wiper. It read: "There are at least 20 people watching while I write this. They think I am putting down my name, address and phone number. But I'm not!"

In a church bulletin: (read carefully)
"The visiting monster today is the Rev. Charles Schmidt."
A young girl, punished by her parents for misbehaving, was made to eat her dinner alone at a small table in the corner of the dining room.
The rest of the family heard her praying over her meal: "I thank thee, Lord, for preparing a table before me in the presence of mine enemies."
