At Hebrew School, the Rabbi finished the day’s lesson. It was now time for the usual question period.
“Rabbi?” asked little Melvin “there’s something I need to know.”
“What’s that my child?” asked the Rabbi.
“Well, according to the Scriptures, the Children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, right?”
“And the Children of Israel beat up the Philistines, right?”
“Uh … right.”
“And the Children of Israel built the Temple, right?”
“Again you are correct.”
“And the Children of Israel fought the Egyptians, and the Children of Israel fought the Romans, and the Children of Israel were always doing something important, right?”
“All that is correct,” agreed the Rabbi. “So what’s your question?”
“What I need to know is this,” demanded Melvin. “What were all the grown-ups doing?”
Wear sleeveless shirts! Support your right to bare arms!
Thought for the day
Pray that every time I open my mouth I’ll be able to make Christ plain as day to them. Colossians 4:4 MSG
Some of us open our mouths more than others. We have an opinion on everything. Let us put aside our personal opinions and proclaim the message of Christ clearly. When we have the opportunity to share, we must be able to share clearly. To proclaim a message clearly is to show the person that you are speaking with that what you are sharing—your message—is from God. It’s not from you or something you made up. It’s a story that only God could write.
