A pastor told me a joke about a painter & an angel once, this is the cartoon I drew to illustrate it in his bulletin.
Here’s the joke as I understand it:
”Repaint and Thin No More!”
A painter was hired to paint the exterior of a church building.
His practice was to thin the paint so that he could make a larger profit.
Lying in bed that night the painter’s conscience was severely pricked when a huge angel appeared to him declaring:
“Repaint! Go, and thin no more!”
This is a play on words, based on “Repent, go & sin no more” from the New Testament, below are the Bible References to those words.

Sin no more made bold for clarity – MY
The story of Jesus, the Pharisees & the woman caught in adultery. After all of the woman’s accusers had left, Jesus says these words:
John 8:10 English Standard Version (ESV)
10 Jesus stood up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” 11 She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.”
After Jesus heals the man who was an invalid for 38 years…
John 5:14 English Standard Version (ESV)
14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, “See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you.”
