Scripture Reading: The Death of John the Baptist
Once there was a man in a park who saw some girls jumping rope, so he thought he’d have some fun with them. He walked over and he challenged them to a contest. He tied a ribbon to the middle of the rope, scratched a line in the dirt, and said, “I’ll give a quarter apiece to the team who can pull the ribbon over to their side of the line.” He stepped back to watch the girls pull and tug against each other. Little did he know the girls were about to give him a big surprise.
