An Imaginary Conversation Between Moses and God (At least I think it was imaginary!)

Moses: God, you have given me the honor of writing down your words, so that they would be saved for all of posterity, and I really appreciate it, really I do...

God: I sense a "but" coming, Moses.

Moses: Well, I've written down everything that you have told me to write verbatim, word for word...

God: That's what verbatim means, Moses... Don't be redundant.

Moses: I've written things that I don't even understand myself... "Don't boil a baby goat in his mother's milk, Don't shave your forehead for the sake of the dead". I've written it all...

God: but?

Moses: I really can't write this down.

God: Why not?

Moses: It's just not right that's all. It just seems a bit hypocritical to me.

God: Now, Moses. Do you really think I would allow you to write something hypocritical in My Book?

Moses: Well, I guess not. It just seems sort of self-serving, you know?

God: You just let me worry about that. This verse will speak to lots of people over the centuries, trust Me. Besides, I have a really great reason for wanting that verse in the Bible.

Moses: You do? What is it, God?

God: It's going to make Linda Fischer smile one day.

Moses: Okay Lord, that's good enough for me. I'll write it ...... "Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth." Numbers 12:3

(Thousands of years later)

Linda: ha ha hahahahah Moses wrote that!
