    A good one found on another site:

    Modern Parable

    A man fell into a pit and couldn't get himself out...

    A subjective person came along and said, "I feel for you down there."

    An objective person walked by and said, "It's logical that someone would fall down there."

    A Pharisee said, "Only bad people fall into pits."

    A mathematician calculated how deep the pit was.

    A self-pitying person said, "You haven't seen anything until you've seen my pit."

    A Christian Scientist observed, "The pit is just in your mind."

    A psychologist noted, "Your mother and father are to blame for your being in that pit."

    A self-esteem therapist said, "Believe in yourself and you can get out of that pit."

    An optimist said, "Things could be worse."

    A pessimist claimed, "Things will get worse.

    Jesus, seeing the man, took him by the hand and lifted him out of the pit.

    Feel like you're in a pit today?
    Ask God for a lift up, he'll help you out.
