The Kingdom of God is Like A Test-drive… Funniest Thing I’ve Seen in Months

The kingdom of God is like a normal everyday car salesman who shows up to work, tries to do his job well and feed his family. It’s not the most highly respected profession in the world. In fact a lot of people look down on him. He doesn’t make a ton of money, but he puts food on the table and does his business. Until one day Jeff Gordon shows up in disguise and takes him on the test drive of his life. They do donuts, they go way too fast, they drive on loading docks, and in just a few seconds they are backing into the parking spot at the dealership. At first the salesman was angry, “Who the hell do you think you are…” But when he learned what had really happened, who had really been driving, he had the good sense to say, “Can we do it again?”

It’s not Friday, but this is funny.

My favorite line was, “Ohhhhhhh, my God. You’re an idiot and I’m going to kill you.”

    No way that’s real.

    If it is real, it’s totally irresponsible… That salesman looks ripe for a heart-attack…

    Speaking of which, let me put a plug in for a predominantly whole-foods, plant-based diet to prevent and reverse most chronic diseases, including heart-attacks! :)
