I was listening to Pastors Perspective yesterday when a nine-year-old boy called in asking about the stoning of children in the old Testament. One of the hosts, Don Stewart, mentioned that yes, parents did stone their children back in the day for sinning/disobeying, etc., but that this was mostly in regards to teens and older adolescents, not nine-year-olds. He then asked Pastor Chuck to expand on the stoning of teenagers. Pastor Chuck replied, "Well, I don't necessarily think that's such a bad idea." I laughed out loud. (He made himself laugh too.)
Somedays you just have to laugh at your circumstances, especially when you're just so sick of crying about them.
