A tale of four worms
“4 Worms In Church” - Four worms and a lesson to be learned!!!!
A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.
The first worm was put into a container of alcohol.
The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke.
The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup.
The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.
At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:
The first worm in alcohol….Dead.
The second worm in cigarette smoke….Dead.
Third worm in chocolate syrup….Dead.
Fourth worm in good clean soil….Alive….
Maxine was sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said
“As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won’t have worms!”
That pretty much ended the service!
Today is International Disturbed People’s Day.
Please send an encouraging message to a disturbed friend….Just as I’ve done.
“Hang in there sunshine, you’re special!”
Related: Two New Testament Christian Scriptures to think about:
14 When He had called all the multitude to Himself, He said to them, “Hear Me, everyone, and understand: 15 There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man. 16 If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear!”
17 When He had entered a house away from the crowd, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable. 18 So He said to them, “Are you thus without understanding also? Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside cannot defile him, 19 because it does not enter his heart but his stomach, and is eliminated, thus purifying all foods?” 20 And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. – Mark 7:14-20
17 Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. 20 These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man.” – Matthew 15:17-20
