We hear people saying "Hey you stonehead!"
In an article a chinese columnist made a remark on S. Koreans saying in effect "they ate too much kimchi so that they became stupid/stone headed/potheads." How insulting! And how barbaric! How un-etiquette?!
This reminded me however that every human being ought to grow up rising from a lowly level of mere material like a stone or that of animals/insects, noting that man on falling can and indeed has gone down to the level lower than that of mere mass like a cement bag or a donkey.
In Luke 19 a man named Jesus of nazareth said TO the (religious) leaders of his day, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out." What a sense of humour?! (And how on earth did the Pharisees become worse than stones?)
This morning a friend of mine sent me a video showing an elephant drawing on a canvas a self portrait far better rhan that of picaso!
Another friend of mine forwarded to me a video where a kangaroo beating down ^^ at a boxing ring a human boxer. :-)
My cat eboney has 12 kittens. Yet she is well fit like a model. When i feed the kittens while her kittens rush to the food box she always stays one step removed. How sacrificial! And she never overeats!
There is so much to grow up in the Lord as the apostle peter says: grow up in the grace and knowledge of the Lord!
