A merry heart doth good like a medicine.

Proverbs 17:22

A man got a job with the county highway department painting lines down the center of the highway. His supervisor told him he was expected to paint two miles of highway each day.

The first day, the man painted four miles. The supervisor thought, “Great.”

The second day, the man only painted two miles but the supervisor thought, “Well, it’s good enough.”

On the third day, the man only painted one mile and the boss went out to talk to him. He asked, “Is there a problem, injury, or reason you keep painting less and less highway?”

The man replied, “Well, I keep getting farther away from the bucket.”

You will notice when you get farther away from the Bible and church, it is much harder to please the boss. #PleaseGod

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

John 15:5
