After dinner, her mother told her husband to find out about the young man. So the young woman's father took the young man into his study to discuss things "man to man."
"So, what are your plans, young man?" asked her father.
"I am a Bible scholar." "Hmm," the father said, "admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house and life for my daughter?" "I will study," the young man replied. "God will provide for us."
"And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring such as she deserves?" asked the father. "I will concentrate on my studies," the young man answered. "God will provide for us."
"And children?" asked the father. "How will you support children?' "Don't worry, sir. God will provide," replied the fiancé. The conversation proceeded like this for quite an amount of time. Every time the father asked a question,the young man always replied with, "God will provide."
Later, after the young man had left, the mother asked her husband, "How did it go?" The father answered, "He has no job and no plans, but the good news is he thinks I'm God."
