Yesterday we had a free day in math class. We could do anything we wanted and no math problems. I didn't have much to do so I drew a picture of Jesus. I'm pretty good at drawing, especially when it comes to drawing Jesus. The kid sitting behind me said "who's that?!?"
"Jesus -duh :)" I replied
"Wow, that's pretty good!" he says, and now other kids want to see it. So it gets passed down my row, then the row to the right of me. Then the kid sitting to the right of me asks "do you want this?" I considered it a moment and thought, well, I draw Jesus all the time; and thought maybe he'd like to have it. I responded, "nah."
He then spits in the picture's face, and with it soaked with snot and saliva he throws it down to the ground and starts to stomp on it saying:
"I - love - Jesus - at - the - bottom - of - my - FOOT." (Every dash is a stomp.)
I was shocked to hear that this little episode sent giggles through the classroom. As the kid picks up the picture off the ground, which is now torn down the middle due to it's abuse, he noticed I looked a little distraught over the fact that he just smashed a picture of my Savior's face in. He then asks me with what sounded like either anoyance or anger,
"how do you even know He exists?" And before I can even fathom a response he gets up to throw whats left of the picture away.
The kid behind me probably saw my disapointment or whatever that feeling was, and asks:
"Oh, is it because it took you a long time to draw it?"
"Huh?" I replied.
"Is that why you're upset, because it took you a while to draw it?"
That made me mad. It took me less than ten minutes, maybe even five, to draw that picture. "NO!" I responded. "I'm upset at the fact that he just curb stomped a picture of Jesus!" :mad:
sigh I don't know what really to make out of this little incident. I kinda think I know how Peter felt when he denied Christ. Or any disciple that witnessed the mocking of our Savior's death. Of course, on a much smaller scale.
