A man wasn’t feeling well so he went to the doctor. After examining him the doctor took his wife aside, and said, "your husband has a very sensitive heart. I am afraid he’s not going to make it, unless you treat him like a king, which means you are at his every beck and call, 24 hours a day and that he doesn’t have to do anything himself. On the way home the husband asked with a note of concern "what did he say?" "Well", the lady responded, "he said it looks like you probably won’t make it."
A young boy called the preacher of the local "corner" church to ask him to come by and pray for his mother who had been very ill with the flu. The preacher knew the family had been attending another church down the road. So he asked, "Shouldn't you be asking Brother Simon from your church to come by to pray with your mom?" The young boy replied, "Yeah, but we didn't want to take the chance that he might catch whatever this is that Mom has."
