How We Talk

It was Easter Sunday and the church was packed with worshippers.

The pastor asked the children to come to the front of the Sanctuary, for a time of interactive ministry with him. A beautiful little girl came forward wearing a new dress. The dress was one of those garments that really stand out. It had a petticoat under it that was starched and carefully ironed. It was a beautiful dress and she looked stunning in it.

The pastor singled her out saying, "My, what a beautiful dress."

Without hesitation, the girl agreed adding, "Yes, and my momma says it's a bitch to iron."

Can't you just see that poor, embarrassed mother slinking down in her pew!

Maybe we should be a little more careful about how we talk in front of little children.
