At the conclusion of the sermon, the worshipers filed out of the church to greet the Pastor. As one of them left, he shook the minister’s hand, thanked him for the sermon and said, “Thanks for the message, Pastor. You know, you must be smarter than Einstein.” Beaming with pride, the Pastor said, “Why, thank you, brother!”
As the week went by, the Pastor began to think about the man’s compliment. The more he thought, the more he became baffled as to why anyone would deem him smarter than Einstein. So he decided to ask the man the following Sunday.
The next Sunday he asked the parishioner if he remembered the previous Sunday’s comment about the sermon. The parishioner replied that he did. The Pastor asked: “Exactly what did you mean that I must be smarter than Einstein?”
The man replied, “Well, Pastor, they say that Einstein was so smart that only ten people in the entire world could understand him. But Pastor, no one can understand you.”
