Funny Scriptures

There are many verses of holy writ which tickle my fancy. Alex and I most recently happened upon the following verse. It is found in Exodus chapter 1. The chapter begins by discussing how the Egyptians were worried about the children of Israel becoming more powerful than the Egyptians. So in order to keep the Israelites down, they set taskmasters over them.
12 But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.
Now that is funny stuff. Just think about that next time you're feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders. "I know--let's have more kids! Then we'll feel much better, I'm sure."

It's almost like a soap opera. Except without a hospital.

Do you have a favorite funny scripture?
