The Proposal

A young woman brought her fiancee home to meet her parents.  After dinner, her mother told her father to find out about the young  man.

The father invited the fiancee to his study for a talk.  “So what do you do for a living?” the father asked the young man.

“I am a Biblical scholar,” he replied.  ”

A Biblical scholar. Hmm……..” , the father said. “Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live  in?

“I will study” , the young man replied and God will provide for  us.

And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as   she  deserves?” asked the father.

“I will concentrate on my studies”,  the young man replied, “God  will provide for us.”

“And children?” asked the father. “How will you support children?”  “Don’t worry Sir, God will provide,” replied the fiancee.

The conversation proceeded like this and each time the father  questioned, the young idealist insisted that God would provide.

Later, the mother asked, “How did it go Honey?”

The father answered, “He has no job, no income, no plans and he  thinks I’m God!!”
