The Shop That Sells Husbands

Posted on Posted in Daily Life Nuggets, Religion and Faith

A store that sells husbands has just opened where a woman may go to choose a husband from among many men.

The store is composed of 6 floors, and the men increase in positive attributes as the shopper ascends the flights.

There is, however, a catch. As you open the door to any floor you may choose a man from that floor, but if you go up a floor, you cannot go back down except to exit the building.



So a woman goes to the shopping center to find a husband.

On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 – These men have jobs.

The woman reads the sign and says to herself, “Well, that’s better than my last boyfriend, but I wonder what’s further up?” So up she goes.

The second floor sign reads:

Floor 2 – These men have jobs and love kids.

The woman remarks to herself, “That’s great, but I wonder what’s further up?” And up she goes again.

The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 – These men have jobs, love kids and are extremely good looking.

“Hmmm, better” she says. “But I wonder what’s upstairs?”

The fourth floor sign reads:

Floor 4 – These men have jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking and help with the housework.

“Wow!” exclaims the woman, “very tempting. BUT, there must be more further up!” And again she heads up another flight.

The fifth floor sign reads:

Floor 5 – These men have jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking, help with the housework and have a strong romantic streak.

“Oh, mercy me! But just think… what must be awaiting me further on?” So up to the sixth floor she goes.

The sixth floor sign reads:

Floor 6 – You are visitor 6,875,953,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.

Funny joke but come to think of this how many of us are ‘possible’ to please?

How many of us are grateful for the little we have and cherish it with all we got?

You have a CV but you are complaining you don’t have a job.
You have legs but you are not happy because you don’t have a car.
You have eyes but you are not entirely happy because you can’t afford the designer shades.
You have family but you are complaining you don’t have friends.
You have friends but you are not happy you are alive to even have enemies.
You have feet but you are distraught because you have only two shoes.
You have complete hands but you keep complaining there is nothing to do to make money.
You have a roof over your head but you keep murmuring of the light situation in the country.

You can eat but you are sad that you have no food while some have food but cannot eat.
You keep questioning God that you don’t have money while rich people commit suicide on a daily basis.
You are not happy you can’t travel in your own car while car owners have accident and die regularly.
You are peacefully married without a child yet while some married folks are caught in a web of lies, deceit and hatred.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made but you are complaining that you don’t have enough boobs or ass.

Is the human appetite ever satiable?

Aren’t you tired already?

You complain of this, you are not happy with that, you want things to change, you desire an improvement on so and so.


What about the things you do have. Aren’t you happy you have them and grateful for them?

I want you to ask yourself a pertinent question.

What will you do if you were Jesus?

When His disciples brought the five loaf and two fish to feed five thousand men minus women and children, you would have complained.

“What’s this? Just five loaf and two fish? For what? Even only me can finish this. Don’t you people have sense? We need baskets of food to feed all these people. This can’t be enough. Guys we need more food. Why can’t you all understand. This is not enough. We need more. Go and buy more. Go and get some money and get more food for these people. Please get to work. More food please. This is not enough”.

This is you if you were Jesus. But what does Jesus do? He took the five loaf and two fish and thanked God for them and God multiplied them to feed over ten thousand people (five thousand men and uncounted women and children) and there were 12 baskets of remnants.

When will you stop complaining and start thanking God for that which you have?

Start today.


#ThanksgivingChallenge is still ongoing for this week. A full week of thanking God for His faithful in your life.
