A Fly In The Ointment
This is the doughnut case in our supermarket, don't they have some cute doughnuts? It is self serve, you grab a box and put in as many as you want. As you can see, they are behind glass doors which you have to open. Well, the other day, I went to get a few, but saw that a fly had gotten inside the case, and was landing on all the donuts! I went home without any, because we all know how dirty flies are. Then today, I visited the case again to grab just one doughnut. Yikes, a fly again!! But I must confess that I had been on the go all day, and was so hungry that I took one and ate it anyway! I told myself that people eat food at picnics that flies have been all over. Now, what would YOU have done? I'm thinking this might turn out 50/50.
Jesus called the crowd to him and said "Listen and understand. What goes into a man's mouth does not make him unclean, but what comes out of his mouth, that is what makes him unclean."
"The tongue is also a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person..."
