A couple was trying to select the best theme verse to emphasize the theme of their wedding.
After spending a couple of time searching together, they settled for 1 John 4:18 which reads that
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love cast out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears are not made perfect in love”.
They then instructed the wedding cake designer to scribe that verse on their wedding cake.
Unfortunately, when the cake designer was scribbling the theme verse on the cake, he forgot to put the 1 which was on the chosen actual theme verse.
This changed the theme verse from 1 John 4:18 to John 4:18.
On their wedding day, after blessing the wedding, when they got to the part about cutting the cake, they brought the cake to their pastor so he can bless it first.
However, as soon as the pastor saw the cake, he collapsed and fell onto the ground. After some first aid, he recovered his consciousness and got back to his feet.
“How in the world would you choose such a verse as your beautiful wedding’s theme verse?” asked the pastor before anyone could ask him what went wrong.
“What do you mean pastor?” asked the bridegroom.
“You chose John 4:18 as your theme verse?” asked the pastor. “Who even came up with that verse?”
Not wanting to waste time paying attention to detail, the bride jumped in,
“we did it together pastor, me and the groom. What’s wrong with it?”
“Everything is wrong with it,” said the pastor with so much emphasis to the bride, “have you been married before?”
“No pastor!” she replied running out of patience, “why would you even ask such an annoying question?”
The pastor shook his head again and gave the Bible to the bride,
“read the verse that has been scribbled on your wedding cake for us?”
With all the confidence, the bride took the Bible and read it aloud,
“John 4:18 reads ‘For you have had five husbands, and the man whom you have now is not your husband’.”
