put some turnips, his least-favorite vegetable, on my eleven-year-old son’s dinner plate and instructed him to eat everything. He cleaned his plate, except for the turnip.
I pointed out to him that if he’d eaten it earlier, he wouldn’t have been left with its taste in his mouth at the end of the meal.
Thoughtfully, he replied, “I guess I was just trying to delay the inedible.”
Sadly, the days of people using proper English are went.
Thought for the day
“Job stood up, tore his robe in grief, and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground and worshiped” (Job 1:20 GW).
Job expressed his pain to God. When you have a major loss in your life, the first thing you need to do is tell God exactly how you feel.
