A joyful heart is good medicine… Proverbs 17:22

A student was sitting outside his university classroom, reading God’s Word, when his atheistic professor walked by and happened to hear the student exclaim, “Wow! Praise the Lord!” Intrigued, the professor asked the student what had him so excited. “Well,” the student replied, “I just read how God parted the waters of the Red Sea so the Hebrews could pass to safety.”

The professor calmly explained that in actuality there was a mistranslation and the Reed Sea where the crossing actually took place was, at that time of year, only about three inches deep. Confident he had handled the situation, the professor went to retrieve something from his office.

Upon his return a minute or two later, he again passes the student as once more he loudly exclaims,”Wow! Praise the Lord!” Interested, the professor asks the student what is so fascinating this time. The student responds, “I just read how God drowned the entire Egyptian army in three inches of water!”
