...Rebellion is as sinful as witchcraft,

and stubbornness as bad as worshiping idols."

Golf joke.
For thirty five years, four old hackers had never missed their Saturday morning four ball. Hail rain or shine they were always there. One morning on the first green, Sam was about to putt when he noticed a funeral cortege slowly making its way along the road adjacent to the golf course. Sam stepped back from his putt, removed his cap, faced the cortege and bowed his head. When the cortege had passed he replaced his cap and finished out his putt. His playing partners were impressed and complemented him for showing such respect. Ah well, said Sam, it was the least I could do, after all, I was married to her for thirty years!
par five I know you probably have already heard this one, but here it goes.....

Two friends were playing golf one day.
They decided that they would adhere strictly to the rules with no improving their lie.

After a few holes, one guy's ball landed on a cart path. As he reached down to pick up his ball to get relief his friend said, "We agreed that we would not improve our lie."

No matter how much the first fellow tried to explain that he was entitled to this relief, the second fellow would not allow it.

So the man went to the cart to get a club. As he stood over the ball he took a few practice swings, each time scraping the club on the pavement, taking out big chunks of blacktop and sending out lots of sparks! Finally, after several practice swings he took his shot. The ball took off and landed on the green about 6 feet from the pin.

"Great shot!" his friend exclaimed.
"What club did you use?"

"YOUR 7-iron!" he replied.

Psalm 137 - what a little gem this one is.

8 Daughter Babylon, doomed to destruction,
happy is the one who repays you
according to what you have done to us.
9 Happy is the one who seizes your infants
and dashes them against the rocks.

Great joy in killing infants? Barbarians.

Judges 19

23 And the man, the master of the house, went out to them and said to them, "No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing.

24 Behold, here are my virgin daughter and his concubine; let me bring them out now. Ravish them and do with them what seems good to you; but against this man do not do so vile a thing."

25 But the men would not listen to him. So the man seized his concubine, and put her out to them; and they knew her, and abused her all night until the morning. And as the dawn began to break, they let her go.

26 And as morning appeared, the woman came and fell down at the door of the man's house where her master was, till it was light.

27 And her master rose up in the morning, and when he opened the doors of the house and went out to go on his way, behold, there was his concubine lying at the door of the house, with her hands on the threshold.

28 He said to her, "Get up, let us be going." But there was no answer. Then he put her upon the ass; and the man rose up and went away to his home.

29 And when he entered his house, he took a knife, and laying hold of his concubine he divided her, limb by limb, into twelve pieces, and sent her throughout all the territory of Israel.

1 Peter 3:14-15

"But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. AND DO NOT FEAR THEIR INTIMIDATION, AND DO NOT BE TROUBLED,

...but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence."

Yes, "with gentleness and reverence." (in 1 Peter 3:14-15).

"rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." (1 Peter 3:4)

Peter says that wives "without a word" can win their disobedient husbands, by means of their good example > 1 Peter 3:1-4. And I can see that this "incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit" makes them pleasing to our Father -- and this "gentle and quiet spirit" is "incorruptible" with almighty power to effect their husbands and overcome and change their disobedient nature so they become obedient, also with their wives, in God's gentle and quiet love " you will find rest for your souls" (in Matthew 11:29).

And we also have > "Brethren, if anyone is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted." (Galatians 6:1)

So, I think this confirms that in the gentleness of Jesus we are in His almighty power so we can restore anyone "in any trespass". This power of His love we can spread right through us to each other, to have the effect of His own love.

Ben, another golf joke.
A keen golfer found himself in Africa with time to play. He asked at his hotel for the nearest golf course, was put in a cab, and spent two hours being driven deeper and deeper into the jungle until he arrived at a course.

He checked in with the pro and asked to rent some equipment and, since he'd never played the course before, for a caddie. In a few minutes, he was escorted to the first tee, where his caddie was waiting with a bagful of clubs under one arm and a rifle under the other.

The golfer was taken aback, but composed himself and hit a good drive down the fairway of the opening hole, a tough par four. As they were walking to his ball, a hyena sprang out of the rough and charged the golfer.

Without missing a beat, the caddie dropped the bag, aimed his rifle, and shot the animal dead.

Again, the golfer had to compose himself, taking a minute to catch his breath. But he quickly recovered, hit a good approach, and got his par.

The same thing happened on the second hole, a long, twisting par five. But this time it was a lion that bolted out of the jungle, charged the golfer, and was dropped by a single shot from the caddie's rifle.

By now the golfer was visibly shaken, but the caddie looked cool and obviously was a good shot, so they played on.

The third hole was an easy par three surrounded by water. The golfer hit a good short iron, which landed near the cup. As he was walking onto the green, a crocodile slid out of the water and began moving toward him.

Unfazed, the golfer looked to his caddie for help. But the caddie stood motionless. The crocodile moved closer, and the golfer, beginning to get upset, again glanced at the caddie, who didn't move.

Finally, with the crocodile just inches away, the golfer screamed, "Aren't you going to do something?"

The caddie looked at the scorecard and said, "I'm sorry, sir, but you don't get a shot on this hole."

Got that one from a golf joke site.
