Our Words for the Week come from James Hewitt in Illustrations Unlimited. It’s a tongue in cheek message just in time for Veterans Day, followed by a more serious note.
A young second lieutenant at Fort Bragg discovered he had no change when he was about to buy a soft drink from a vending machine. He flagged down a passing private and asked him, “Do you have change for a dollar?”
The private said cheerfully, “I think so, let me take a look.”
The lieutenant drew himself up stiffly and said, “Soldier, that is no way to address an officer. We’ll start all over again. Do you have change for a dollar?”
The private came to attention, saluted smartly, and said, “No, sir!”1
Just a note Jesus always spoke with authority but was never authoritarian.
