How many gallons does a ten-gallon hat hold? Well, if you guessed 3/4 gallon you were right. The word galan actually was the Spanish word for bands on the hat. Hatmaker John Batterson Stetson made the ten gallon hat become popular wear for the cowboy.

Prov. 25:11 “Timely advice is lovely, like golden apples in a silver basket.”

Wise time honored advice that is witty & pertinent is as beneficial as a decorative gold apple arranged in a silver basket.

There are several other verses that illustrate wise advice:

Prov. 15:23 “Everyone enjoys a fitting reply; it is wonderful to say the right thing at the

right time!”

Prov. 24:26 “An honest answer is like a kiss of friendship.”

In my lifetime probably two of the most witty & thoughtful people were:

Mr. Brady my middle school drama teacher, who was full of humor & wit

Senator John N. Kennedy from Louisiana here is one of his quotes:

We must never forget that the highest form of appreciation is not to utter words;

but to live by them.

This verses imagery of beauty describes well chosen words, including words of rebuke.

Aside from my dad, President Ronald Reagan was one of the wisest, most witty speakers that I have enjoyed.

Who in your lifetime stands out with wisdom words, and why?

So Go With God for he will fill your mind & heart with words of wisdom & yes even humor. After all, He is our source of humor. If you look to the scripture with that intent, humor & wise thoughts they will jump out at you.

He is creative; He created Platypuses, Yeto crabs, Irrawaddy dolphins.

Look at sarcasm in 1 Kings 18:16-36 Elijah & false prophets - spent all day & nothing

happened, Elijah spoke one request & and God sent fire from heaven & even

vaporized the rocks

Absurdity in Num. 22:22-41 a talking donkey

Pranks in 1 Sam. 5:1-5 God through the ark knocked Dagon on his face

Funny Jonah 2:10 great fish spit Jonah up on the beach, just think of that view

Why not think of one, These are just a few I saw, see if you can think of any others.
