On an encounter with outer space aliens, the aliens asked, “Is there anything outstanding that you have done?”
A man answered, “We built a space shuttle that we use to go to the moon.”
The aliens answered, “So what, we have done that a long time before you have. What else have you done?”
Another man answered, “We invented the computer; a machine that is very small but has great capabilities upon which we depend greatly for development.”
The aliens sarcastically replied, “We have beaten you to that too; you people are really far behind, what else?”
A man who was silent all along said, “The Word of God came between us as a man and made wonders beyond belief.”
The man replied, “We crucified Him.”
O Lord You came down to lift me up,
You approach me, for I am Your pre-occupation,
And I crucify You every day with my sins.
Who else could change my spirit from ingratitude to appreciation?
