Encounter with Jesus at a Restaurant

An Irishman in a wheelchair entered a restaurant one afternoon and asked the waitress for a cup of coffee. The Irishman looked across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus sitting over there?” The waitress nodded “yes,” so the Irishman told her to give Jesus a cup of coffee on him.

The next patron to come in was an Englishman with a hunched back. He shuffled over to a booth, painfully sat down, and asked the waitress for a cup of hot tea. He also glanced across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus over there?” The waitress nodded, so the Englishman said to give Jesus a cup of hot tea, “my treat.”

The third patron to come into the restaurant was a Redneck on crutches. He hobbled over to a booth, sat down and hollered, “Hey thar ;sweet thang. How’s about gettin’ me a cold glass a Coke!” He looked across the restaurant and asked, “Is that God’s boy over thar?” The waitress nodded, so the Redneck said to give Jesus a cold glass of Coke, “on my bill.”

As Jesus got up to leave, he passed by the Irishman, touched him and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Irishman felt the strength come back into his legs, got up, and danced a jig out the door. Jesus also passed by the Englishman, touched him and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Englishman felt his back straightening up, and he raised his hands, praised the Lord and did a series of backflips out the door.

Then Jesus walked towards the Redneck. The Redneck dropped his crutches, jumped up and yelled, “Don’t touch me…I’m drawin’ disability!”

  1. Sadly, it is an all too accurate comment on some segments of society. Living in Canada, a socialist leaning country, I often see the abuses of our off times too generous social safety net. Having said that, I am grateful it is available for people like me that, after ten years, lose their jobs.

  2. smile. Somehow I think Jesus healed and forgave him anyways. Randy
