One Mother's Day I was preaching in another state and during the Sunday School class I told about one of the two times that I sassed my mother. Now my mom is about 4 foot 11 inches tall and I was approaching 6 feet so I towered over her. She had told me to do something and I made the mistake of telling her she wasn't big enough to make me and stomped off.

She told my Dad when he got home from work. He took me into the back bedroom and I sat on the bed. He went thru the tedious process of explaining the birth process. How a woman is never closer to death than during the final stage of birth. Of the pain; of the humiliation in the position a mother-to-be is in; and of the love she had for me to go through all that. Of course I was in tears by the time he finished.

I started to go on with the class but a lady in the audience asked, "So you didn't get a whipping?!"

And I said, "Oh yes he did. Dad gave me the biggest whipping of my life, saying that it was to drive home that lecture he had just given."
