The Bible gives some funny advice to men that just might also be some good advice. Read some verses to make you laugh and gain some good knowledge.

Funny Bible Verses About Men

Here are some really cute Bible verses about men that can cause laughter and create knowledge. If you think the Bible is boring these verses might just change your way of thinking. Thoughts about each verse are given that might make your life a little better. The Bible quotes given here are from The Living Bible Paraphrased. Reading different translations of the Bible can be fun and interesting.

I Am Allergic To Morning

All of chapter 27 in Proverbs gives good advice for men. Proverbs 27:14 says “If you shout a pleasant greeting to a friend too early in the morning he will count it as a curse.” I think that I am allergic to morning, perhaps because I was born at night and am not a morning person. I used to have someone tell me that I had to go to a prayer breakfast with them early in the morning if I truly wanted to serve the Lord.

I wish I had read this verse to defend myself back then. God wrote this verse for all of us that think praying at midnight is just as acceptable as hearing folks being too cheerful in the morning. Perhaps this verse gives insight into not judging others based on their schedule preferences.

Being Poor Can Be Good

Proverbs 13:8 says “Being kidnapped and held for ransom never worries the poor man.” Some church groups claim God will bless you with money if you follow their ways. This verse might dispute that theory and even give comfort into being poor.

Another lesson to be learned from this verse might be to learn to be happy and appreciate your blessings without a lot of money. The more you have, the more you can lose. If you find yourself in a dark place in life because of your finances, this verse may put a smile on your face.

Being Handsome is Not Most Important

Proverbs 27:19 says “A mirror reflects a man’s face but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.” If a man looks into the mirror and does not see a handsome guy, that is not a bad thing. Who you choose to hang around can determine how your life will be.

If you choose friends that are evil, your life will probably head in that direction. Participate in activities with friends doing good for others and the reflection of your personality will outshine how you look on the outside. Also, who you marry is how your life becomes, so choosing a quality friend that becomes your spouse can create a beautiful life indeed.

If more men would laugh with the Bible instead of at it, plus take the advice given, our world just might be a bit better. I think the most fun book to read in the Bible is Proverbs. Try different translations and quirky sayings can bring about a smile. Take some of the advice given in this book and your life just might start an upward spiral.

Accept what is given with grace and do the best we can under the circumstances - seems to be the refrain. Nice share - siva
