1 Timothy 6:3-5King James Version (KJV)
3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
Seems like I am still coping with this flu that has kept me pretty much down.
I don’t like being sick but while I have to be inside and being nursed back to health, all my free time is pretty much spent in bed, sleeping on and off while my thoughts wander aimlessly over some important things I need to get done and believe it or not some things that have been pretty amusing to me over my lifetime, by people I have known.
Some of these amusing reflections actually made me ask myself, did I really hear that?
One situation that made me shake my head in utter disbelief is about a former co-worker who I worked with a number of years ago, who enjoyed coming to work with what she felt was “intelligent” commentary about her interactions with people from various walks of life.
Here is just one of her, did I really hear that stories.
“It was on Saturday morning and as usual my former co-worker was about to go shopping, when two Jehovah Witnesses rang her door bell. She wasn’t going to open the door. But she did.
The two witnesses, seemed pleasant enough and she felt comfortable of them asking her several questions about what she believed. Then one of them also read a few scriptures from their Bible.
Noticing that their Bible questions were getting a little confusing to her, she just wanted to put an end to the conversation quickly. Even if they were nice, she felt regret for even having opening her door.
As she was trying to think of a way to end the doorstep visit, they asked her would she like to learn more about what they were sharing with her.
Now, this is where the story gets humorous.
She tells the two that she really didn’t have an interest, and besides, she was Baptist and her husband was catholic.
That’s when one of the Jehovah Witnesses, replied, “Oh, you have a mixed marriage. ”
Whereby, my former co-worker immediately, responded. “No. We’re both black. ”
Did I really hear that?
Yes I did and there are more comical life experiences I will share with you in the future.
In the meanwhile, enjoy your weekend and keep warm!
