A Man with Dropsy Healed on the Sabbath – Luke 14:1 – 14:6

Only 6 Months to Live But Will Take 6 Months to Pay

A man had a terribly lengthy surgery. It was expensive and the results weren’t very promising. He went to his doctor for the post-op visit, and the doc said, “Well, I have some sad news for you.. You’re not going to live more than six months.” And the man says, “Good night, doc. It’s gonna take me a year just to pay you back what I owe you."And the doc said, “Well, I’ll give you a year then.” (Swindoll’s Ultimate Book of Illustrations & Quotes, p. 264).
