I’m taking a break for a few days. But I’ll leave you in the care of wise counsel.
GOOD PEOPLE are kind even to animals.
But even the kindest act of a rotten soul stinks like run-over skunk in a fender well.
Proverbs 12:10, Steve’s Bible Translation
Here’s how it reads in one of the widely approved Bible versions:
Good people take care of their animals,
but even the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.
Okay, in any version, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. But it’s exactly the kind of thing Jesus would say if he were talking today, right?
He always did love to take it a little over the top.
Maybe he figured that’s where he would find us.
