(Pro 1:26 KJV) I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
When teaching middle school I would often have students approach me wanting me to use my magic powers to produce a tissue for them. I would often reach into my back pocket, pull out my handkerchief, and offer to share. They would recoil in horror. Then I would blow my nose and put it back in my pocket. They would look on in disbelief.
First a science lesson. The handkerchief was loaded with my germs. I doubt if I am going to get sick with my germs. I was not worried for myself but I understand them not wanting to use it.
Second, a little history. I used to have tissue. I was even foolish enough one time to bring a box from home so my little darlings would not go without. Then came the second day of school. I watched as they would reach out, take a large handful of tissue, blow once and throw it all away. Then they would reach for another handful. I had paid for that tissue and they were acting like tissue welfare queens. I stopped bringing my tissue for them to use. So I began requesting it from the school. The office would give me one box at a time and limit how often I could get one. I took to handing them out, one tissue at a time. When they ran out, they ran out. I reminded the students that they had sleeves.
So? God may have sympathy for our spiritual runny noses. There comes a time when He will harden His heart because He can see ours. God does not play games.
