The Moral to the Story is . . .

My nine-year old daughter was angry at being treated unkindly by someone (probably her big brother), and with motherly wisdom, I asked her what Jesus told us to do in the Bible. She looked at me blankly, and I primed the pump by saying, “He told us to turn the other . . . “ “Chin,” she finished. Ah, I thought, a moral for the Baptists of the world. *When I told my father this story, he told me I was evil. I'm going to take that as a compliment.
