God Loves Drunk People Too

A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 AM by a loud pounding on the door.

The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.

"Not a chance," says the husband.  "It is 3:00 AM in the morning!"

He slams the door and returns to bed.

"Who was that?" asked his wife.

"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.

"Did you help him?" she asks.

The husband replied, "No, I did not.  It's 3:00 AM in the morning and it's pouring rain out there!"

"Well, you have a short memory," says his wife.  "Don't you remember about three months ago when our car broke down, and those two guys helped us?  I think you should help him and you should be ashamed of yourself!  God loves drunk people too you know."

The man does as he is told.  He gets dressed and goes out into the pouring rain.

He calls out into the dark, "Hello . . . are you still there?"

"Yes!" comes the reply from the dark.

"Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband.

The drunken man replies, "Yes, please!"

"Where are you?" asks the husband.

"Over here on the swing," replied the drunk.
