Get Out the Lipstick
According to a radio report, a middle school in Oregon was faced with a unique problem. A number of girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.
Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night.
To demonstrate how difficult it was to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance guy to clean one of the mirrors. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it into the toilet and then cleaned the mirror.
Since then there have been no lip prints on the mirror!!
There are teachers and then there are TEACHERS!
Jesus sought ways to teach people about the truth. He would often use parables. And in using these parables Jesus would take something out of their everyday lives or something in nature that would cause the people to stop in their tracks and think about their spiritual condition. Go back and read some of the parables of Jesus and see if you've been leaving lip prints where you shouldn't!
