Why Not?

“Why not?”

Because.

“Because of what?”

Because I can’t.

“Can’t? You’re a Christian, you say?”

I certainly am.

“Then what do you think Paul meant in I Corinthians 10:13?

“Do you think God does?”

Sure, but . . .

“Why the but?”

My case is different, you see.

“Thought it was ‘common’ and that you would have to bear nothing beyond the ability you have to bear it.”

Well . . .

“Moreover, in that verse he says that God will make a way out of it so that you will be able to bear it. It won’t go on forever.”

Oh! I guess you”re right. Tell me how.

“Thought you’d never ask . . .”
