awkward scripture of the day


From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. "Go on up, you baldhead!" they said. "Go on up, you baldhead!" 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths. 25 And he went on to Mount Carmel and from there returned to Samaria.
2 Kings 2:32-25

So what can we take from this? If some kid is making fun of you and being RUDE, just call upon the Lord. Maybe bears will come out of the woods and maul them. Awesome.

Ahahaha! I don't read that blog... but now I feel like maybe I should. I'm glad others appreciate this passage as much as I do. Thanks!
