-boy still makes me laugh-

This weekend in church, we’d just finished reading Colossians 3 together and Roger was leading a discussion about the chapter. He was putting people on the spot and asking them what verse stuck out to them the most. (Gotta love a guy like that in the pulpit! It’s a small church though; so it works.) He warned a couple of the kids, told them to be reading through the chapter, he was expecting to hear their favorite verse.

Things were starting to wrap up, and I thought he’s forgotten about the kids. But, no. He looked at the kid-bench and said, “Wesley, which verse do you like the best?”

Wesley spoke up promptly. “Twenty-one.”

I enjoyed the atmosphere in the room as, gradually, people read the verse to themselves and started laughing when they picked up on the joke.

“Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.”

  1. And Wesley will always remember and become a terrific father, himself.
    (like, Roger, of course!)
