A Professional’s Skills – Humor Unplugged
Wisdom – the final frontier to true knowledge. Welcome to Wisdom-Trek where our mission is to create a legacy of wisdom, to seek out discernment and insights, and to boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend, I am Guthrie Chamberlain, your captain on our journey to increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. Thank you for joining us today as we explore wisdom on our 2nd millennium of podcasts. This is Day 1037 of our trek, and it is time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Humor Unplugged. Our Thursday podcast will provide a short and clean funny story to help you lighten up and live a rich and satisfying life – something to cheer you and provide a bit a levity in your life.
We are told in Proverbs 15:30, “A cheerful look brings joy to the heart; good news makes for good health.” We are also encouraged in Proverbs 17:22, “A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” Consider this your vitamin supplement of cheer for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s funny which is titled…
A Professional’s Skills
We all have the tendency to rely on professionals when we feel that we are not qualified enough in a certain area of life. Quite often we don’t understand the true mastery certain professionals bring to our lives. In today’s humor nugget I will share with you the skill set of 12 different professionals.
- A programmer is someone who solves a problem you didn’t know you had in a way you don’t understand.
- An auditor is someone who arrives after the battle and bayonets all the wounded.
- A banker is someone who lends you their umbrella when the sun is shining and wants it back the minute it begins to rain.
- An economist is someone who is an expert who will know tomorrow why the things he predicted yesterday did not happen today.
- A statistician is someone who is good with numbers but lacks the personality to be an accountant.
- A mathematician is someone who is a blind person in a dark room looking for a black cat that is not there.
- A lawyer is someone who writes a 10,000-word document and calls it a “brief.”
- A psychologist is someone who watches everyone else when a beautiful girl enters the room.
- A pastor is someone who tells you how much God loves you while making you feel wretched.
- A professor is someone who talks in someone else’s sleep.
- A consultant is someone who takes the watch off your wrist and tells you the time.
- A diplomat is someone who can tell you to go to Antarctica in such a way that you will look forward to the trip.
What type of professional are you? I hope these humorous nuggets put a smile on your face for today.
Our good worker verse for today is 2 Timothy 2:15,“Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains the word of truth.”
