Sayings of a Gadfly

The Gadfly saw a woman coming out of a church.  An air of sadness hung over her.  She kept her eyes to the ground as she quickly headed into the streets. 

The Gadfly asked her, “What is wrong?” 

The woman said, “I asked if I could sing in the choir.  I used to sing in church when I was a child.  And I always felt so close to God when I did. But the choir director said I did not belong here.  You see I’m an addict and a prostitute.  I just wanted to sing again.” 

The Gadfly, seeing the choir director walking up, turned to him saying, “Why have you rejected what God has given you?” 

The choir director said, “This woman?  She is not God’s gift.  She’s a drug using prostitute.  It’s not personal.  But our church has a standard of morality that must be maintained.” 

The Gadfly said, “I tell you, her sins are already forgiven.  But when will you open the doors of that tomb you call a heart?”
