Joke of the Day: Man must not live by Bread alone

Akin was lucky to have gained admission
to Government College at the time he did. Everybody in his village looked at
him with awe since they all believed that, for him to have passed the
competitive entrance examination to the prestigious college, he must have been
exceptionally brilliant and intelligent Whenever he came home on holidays, many
of the young boys and girls milled around him to seek answers to all sorts of
questions that bothered their minds.

One day, a
primary school pupil came to Akin
and asked, “Why did Jesus say that man
not live by bread alone?”
Christian Religious Knowledge was not taught to the students at Government College
during his time in the college, Akin was not versed in what Jesus was quoted to
have said or why He said such. He did not know the answer to the small boy’s question!
But he had to cook up an answer if only to prove that he was truly a scholar
from Government College.
“Jesus said that because He believed
that bread was not nutritious enough. It had to be eaten with butter and jam as
well as with tea or coffee”
Akin said after a few seconds. “So every time one eats bread, it must be
with butter and tea or coffee?” Jide,
the primary school pupil, asked.
“Yes o” Akin affirmed.
