A man went to visit his 90-year-old grandfather in a secluded, rural area of the state.
After spending the night, his grandfather prepared breakfast for him consisting of eggs and bacon. He noticed a film-like substance on his plate and he questioned his grandfather, “Are these plates clean?”
His grandfather replied, “Those plates are as clean as cold water can get them so go on and finish your meal.”
That afternoon, while eating the hamburger his grandfather made for lunch, he noticed tiny specks around the edge of this plate, and a substance that looked like dried egg yolks. So he asked again, “Are you sure these plates are clean?”
Without looking up from his hamburger, the grandfather says, “I told you before, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them, now don’t ask me about it anymore!”
Later that afternoon, he was on his way out to get dinner in a nearby town. As he was leaving, Grandfather’s dog started to growl and would not let him pass.
“Grandfather, your dog won’t let me out.”
Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching, Grandfather shouted, “COLDWATER, GET OUT OF THE WAY!!”
Have you ever noticed how nothing is impossible for those who don’t have to do it?
Thought for the day
“A man’s harvest in life will depend entirely on what he sows” Galatians 6:7 Phillips
It’s the law of the harvest. Whatever goes around comes around. If you want to be respected, you must treat other people with respect.
