A young woman brought her fiancée home to have dinner with her parents. After the meal, the mother told her husband to find out more about the young man.
The father invited the fiancée into the library for a drink. “So what are your plans?” the father asked the young man.
“I am attending Bible university to get a degree in Bible studies,” he explained.
“A Bible scholar?” remarked the father. “That’s admirable, but what will you do to provide for my daughter in the manner in which she is accustomed?”
“I will study,” the young man said, “and the Lord will provide for us.”
“And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?” asked the father.
“I will concentrate on my studies,” the young man replied. “The Lord will provide for us.”
“And children?” asked the father. “How will you support children?”
“Don’t worry, sir, the Lord will provide,” replied the fiancée.
The conversation continued like this, and each time the father questioned, the young idealist insisted that the Lord would provide.
Later, the mother asked, “How did it go, Honey?”
“He has no job and no plans,” the father answered, “but the good news is he thinks I’m God.”
