Are there stains on your tie? – JAM

Some time back (1984) Sherri Kinkead announced plans for merchandising her newest brainchild. It is the perfect tie for the less than perfect gentleman. It has everything, including a simulated food stain: navy with tomato ketchup, gray with french onion and so on. No more embarrassment for the clumsy and less graceful. Of course soup on a tie makes no difference, but some things we have no right to get used to. Jeremiah spoke of a people who “were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush” (Jer 6:15). It is a sad day when what amazed our parents, amuses us; what embarrassed them, enchants us; what shocked them, satisfies us. This generation has lost its ability to blush at sin and until we find this gift from God, we are a people miserable indeed! This is Just-a-Minute with Ed Boggess
