A young woman brings her fiancé home to meet her parents. After dinner, her mother tells her husband to find out about the young man, so the father invites the fiancée to his study for a drink.

“So what are your plans?” the father asks the young man. “I am a Bible scholar,” he replies. “A Bible scholar. Hmmm,” the father says. “Admirable, but what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to live in, as she's accustomed to?”

“I will study,” the young man replies, “and God will provide for us.”

“And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring, such as she deserves?” asks the father. “I will concentrate on my studies,” the young man replies, “God will provide for us.”

“And children?” asks the father. “How will you support children?”

“Don't worry, sir, God will provide,” replies the fiancé.

The conversation precedes like this, and each time the father questions, the young idealist insists that God will provide.   Later, the mother asks, “How did it go, Honey?”, and the father answers, “He has no job and no plans, but the good news is he thinks I'm God.”
