It Is What It Is

This morning in church our pastor asked us what the shortest verse in the Bible is. I shouted out, “Jesus Wept”. Brian said, “No, it’s pray continually.” So I sent him an email when I got home:

Pray continually – 15 letters
Jesus wept – 9 letters

I’m just sayin’.

He replied with:

1 Timothy 2:12

I grabbed my Bible, looked it up and proceeded to laugh my head off.

I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.
