I was a guest at a wedding a couple of weeks ago at the Botanical Gardens here in town. It was a little buggy, but a very sweet and well done ceremony. At the close of the service, the pastor prayed a very touching prayer for the couple and ended his prayer saying.
“we ask all of this in the name of Jesus Christ – Amen.”
A little girl, about four years old, immediately turned to her daddy and exclaimed”,
“Daddy, that man said a naughty word”
I was laughing and heart broken at the same time.
What has the world come to,
when the only thing a child knows about the name of Jesus Christ.
Is that it is used as an expletive.
I thought about this incident for a while.
Hard to get it out of my mind.
How have I, living my life, everyday,
How have I contributed to the dishonor of the name of our Lord Jesus Christ?
