"Reading the Bible, I have stumbled across a couple of stories that I think include humorous situations. My favorite is from Numbers 22:27-30 because it features a talking animal! When the prophet Balaam and his trusty companion, a donkey, are traveling across Israel, an angel sent from the Lord thwarts their path. Balaam neglects to see the angel, but his donkey is able to see it so the animal stops walking. Angry and frustrated, Balaam beats his own donkey. In response to his owner’s cruelty, the donkey says, “What wrong have I ever done to you?” While this passage has a clear message that God might try to communicate with you in unexpected ways, it is also humorous to imagine a speaking donkey." – Rachel, TAB Member
