Don't Lose Your Shirt

A mother, unable to attend church one Sunday due to an illness, sent her teenage son to church in her place. After he returned home, and she asked him how church was, the teenage boy responded in typical fashion by saying, "fine".

She began to have her doubts that he had even gone to church so she pressed on and asked what the sermon was about. The young man said, "Don't lose your shirt and you'll get a blanket"

The mother knew then that she had caught him. So, she phoned the minister and inquired as to what the text was for the day's sermon. The minister replied, "Be patient and the Lord will be your comforter."
