A woman was asked by a coworker,
“What is it like to be a Christian?”
The coworker replied, “It is like being
a pumpkin. God picks you from the
patch, brings you in, and washes all
the dirt off of you. Then He cuts off
the top and scoops out all the yucky
stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt,
hate, and greed. Then He carves you
a new smiling face and puts His light
inside of you to shine for all the world
This was passed on to me by another
pumpkin. Now it’s your turn to pass it
to other pumpkins.
On its face, this email looks like it was written and sent by your aunt who collects Precious Moments figurines and wears hand-painted sweatshirts. Then this happens: “Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff… Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.” Yeah, that’s a little gory. And the idea of a person being a hollowed-out shell of their former selves with a carved-on perma-smile and a light shining out through the holes isn’t terribly appealing.
Points Awarded For:
Color- that pumpkiny color was hard to duplicate.
Graphic- I don’t think it’s actually Precious Moments, but it’s close enough.
Thanks, Matt! Keep them coming, y’all.
