Witness to These Things
by Peter Andrew Smith
Acts 5:27-32

“You need to stop,” Jodi said. “You’re embarrassing yourself.”

Cindy looked up at the three girls surrounding her table in the High School cafeteria. “What are you talking about?”

There have been a number of occasions in my life where I have had the opportunity to make a complete fool of myself, and sad to say, I have generally taken full advantage of each one of those opportunities as they came along. I suppose I could prove the point by regaling you with dozens of pertinent stories, but for the sake of preserving your time and my dignity, I will tell you just one.
