Many years ago, my father was visiting America, from Europe, for the very first time.
He said he wanted to go with me to the supermarket, so I invited him along.
As he went up & down the aisles with me, at the local Giant Food Store, he constantly asked me questions about products he saw.
"Vas diss?? Powdered orange juice??" asked my dad.
I said, "Yeh, Dad. You just add a little water, and you have fresh orange juice."
A few minutes later, in a different aisle, dad blurted out, "Und vas dis?? Powdered milk?"
I said, "Yeah, Dad. You just add a little water, and you have fresh milk!"
A few minutes later, in a different aisle, my dad yelled out,
"Und give a look here!! Baby Powder!! Vat a country, vat a country!"
Guilt vs. Repentance
A couple of weeks after hearing a sermon on Psalms 51:2-4 (knowing my own hidden secrets) and Psalms 52:3-4 (lie's and deceit), a man wrote the following letter to the IRS.
"I have been unable to sleep, knowing that I have cheated on my income tax. I understated my taxable income, and have enclosed a check for R25,500.00.
If I still can't sleep, I will send the rest".
