A man and his wife were checking out of a hotel. They noticed that they had been charged for a basket of fresh fruit that had been brought to their room every day. The husband asked, “How can you charge us for fresh fruit when we never ate any fruit from any basket on any day?”
The manager replied, “It’s not my fault you didn’t eat it. It was there.”
So the man took the bill and subtracted $150 from it. The manager asked, “What in the world are you doing?”
The man answered, “I am charging you $50 a day for kissing my wife.”
“I never kissed your wife!” the manager exclaimed.
“That’s not my fault,” answered the husband. “She was there!”
God offers his presence to us at all times. It is up to us to take advantage of his availability.
