Father — A Story In 100 Words
Father threw his coat on the chair and announced, “I’m tired of trying to see the good in people.”
“Tough day, Father?”
“You have no idea. All day long, problems, problems, problems. I can’t fix chronic poor choices in partners or unfulfilled dreams of success because of laziness.”
“Did anything good happen today?”
“Well, the steps were repainted. It was a decent job, considering it was done by a recovering alcoholic.”
“See, that’s a start.”
“But there was a parade of people coming to confess all sorts of stupid things to me.
“Well, maybe being a pastor isn’t for you.”
