The story is told of four high school boys who couldn’t resist the temptation to skip morning classes. After lunch they showed up at school & reported to the teacher that their car had a flat tire.
Much to their relief, she smiled & said, “Well, you missed a quiz this morning, so take your seats and get out a pencil & paper.”
Still smiling, she waited as they settled down and got ready for her questions. Then she said, “First question - which tire was flat?”
1 Cor 3:19 (KJ21): “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written: “He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.”
“If I speak what is false, I must answer for it; if truth, it will answer for me.” - Thomas Fuller.
