A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his sermon so he took four worms, placed them in four separate jars. The first worm was put into a container of alcohol, the second worm, a container of cigarette smoke, the third worm, a container of chocolate syrup and the fourth worm was put into a container of good, clean soil.
At the conclusion of his message, the minister reported the following results: First worm in alcohol, dead. Second worm in cigarette smoke, dead. Third worm, chocolate syrup, dead. And the fourth worm in the good clean soil, he was more alive than ever in his life.
So the minister asked the congregation, “What can we learn from this demonstration?”
A guy in the back raised his hand and he said, “As long as you drink smoke and eat chocolate, you won’t have worms.”
LISTEN: There are some people no matter how clearly you say it, no matter how clearly you illustrate it. They just don’t get it.
