Thanks to Nortina for hosting Moral Monday’s prompts. This week’s moral is any moral our Dad taught us.
The eight-year-old girl was crying. When a bulletin had come around church asking for people to read Bible verses once a month, the girl thought she could do it.
It was time for her to read the first lesson. She forgot how full the pews were on a Sunday.”I don’t want to do this Daddy,” said the little girl tearfully.
Her Dad comforted her and said: “I’m sorry but you said you would.”
The girl bowed, and stepped up on the alter.She started reading the first lesson into a mic. She was crying, but as she neared half-way, her tears calmed.When she was done reading, she felt peace pass over her.
Shelley introduced her teenage daughter to Kelsey with pride. “Charlotte’s so involved, tell Kelsey what you do besides school?”
Charlotte said: “I play volleyball, basketball, and soccer after school and weekends. I’m head of the student council and grad committee. I sing in choir and take piano lessons. Also, I read with children in primary school. At church I play piano and read Bible verses during the service.”
Kelsey was slightly shocked. “You do all this? When do you get to have coffee or see a movie with your friends?”
Charlotte frowned, “I’ve no time for activities with friends.”
