A tomcat and a tabby cat were courting on a back fence at night.
The tom leaned over to the tabby with pent up passion and purred..."I'll die for you!"
The tabby gazed at him from under lowered eye lids and asked, "How many times?"
Jesus asked us to die to ourselves, everyday: 23 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. 24 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.
