4 Worms And A Lesson To Be Learned
So I’m at church on Sunday. Our church likes to use visual demonstrations to get the point across. This time it had to do with 4 worms at church.
The preacher put the worms in different jars. The first worm was put into a container of alcohol. The 2nd was put into a container of cigarette smoke. The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup and the 4th worm was put into a container of good clean soil.
At the end of the sermon, the preacher took a look into the containers. The first worm in alcohol…dead. The second worm in cigarette smoke…..dead. The third worm in chocolate syrup….dead. The 4th worm in the good clean soil was alive.
The preacher asked us what we learned from the demonstration. I was thinking that if we live a good, clean life we’ll be alive. Don’t get caught up in the trappings of the world, etc. Just as I was getting ready to raise my hand to answer, Tara put hers up. I thought, this is awesome, she gets the moral of the story. The preacher also thought it was neat that such a young girl would participate. He called on Tara and said, what does it mean to you? Tara said “Does it mean if you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won’t have worms.”……….That pretty much ended the service.
By the way, no actual worms were hurt in the telling of the story.
