A boy entered a grocery store and asked the grocer for a box of Duz detergent. The grocer was puzzled and asked why he wanted a box of Duz. The boy said that he was going to wash his cat. The grocer said, "Young man, you shouldn’t wash your cat with this kind of soap." However, the boy insisted that it would be okay.

A few days later, the boy returned, and grocer asked the cat. "Oh, he died," said the boy. The grocer said, "Well, son. I warned you not to wash your cat with Duz detergent."

The boy replied, "The soap did not hurt him a bit. It was the spin cycle that got him."

Indeed, it is the "spin cycle" of trials that often get us.

(From a sermon by Nathan Johnson, "A Patient Faith" 1/23/2009)
