Women? Sure... What do you want to know about them?

Updated: Mar 21, 2021

Robert, here is something else we will never understand:

There once was a good and righteous man, a man filled with love and compassion for people who always did what was right in the sight of God. After many years, God came to him and said, “Robert, I have watched you for years and I want you to know I am well pleased with you. I want to grant to you the desire of your heart. Anything you ask of me I will do it for you."

Immediately, without a second thought, Robert replied, “God I would like you to build me a bridge from California to Hawaii!” He said this with triumph thinking how awesome that would be!

God looked at him with bewilderment and a tad of disappointment and said, “Robert, I think you fail to see the magnitude of what I am saying. If you ask me to, I will end poverty or disease. Anything you ask of me. This is very important and so you should carefully consider your request. I am going to leave you now for 24 hours to give you time to think deeply on this matter. When I return, you will have had enough time to consider this and then I will grant to you whatever you ask of me.”

Robert nodded his head in agreement and said, “Yes Sir, I will do that.” 24 hours later God returned and asked Robert if he had given careful thought to the matter to which Robert answered affirmatively, “Yes Sir I have given it very deep thought and I realized the most important thing I could ever ask is that you grant to me the wisdom to understand women.”

Immediately without a second thought, and with a look of bewilderment and a tad of disappointment, God said to Robert, “Um… where did you want that bridge built to?”

And the moral of the story is: Guys, we will never be able to understand women if God can’t! So just learn to love them unconditionally and cherish every moment . . .
