"I don't care for my potatoes mashed, and chicken in gravy sticks in my throat. I would just like a hard-boiled egg, please," the lady said, after refusing the food Mother had so carefully prepared.

Ungratefulness. Emma had never done anything as uncharitable as that. But... Emma didn't like lima beans. She didn't like noodles. And tuna casserole seemed to stick in her throat. Perhaps she was more like that lady than she cared to think.

Learn with them about eavesdropping, confession, perseverance, honesty, Christian relationships, and much more. Each story teaches Biblical principles for a life that God can bless.
