A minister was completing a temperance sermon.
With great emphasis he said,
‘If I had all the beer in
The world, I’d take it and pour it into the river.’
With even greater emphasis he said,
‘And if I had
All the wine in the world, I’d take it and
Pour it into the river.’
And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he Said,
‘And if I had all the whiskey in the world,
I’d take it and pour it into the river.’
Sermon complete, he sat down.
The hymn-leader stood very cautiously and announced
With a smile, nearly laughing,
‘For our closing hymn, let us sing
‘Shall We Gather at the River.’
Smile, life is too short not to !!
