I didn’t really do much yesterday, so I will post about something that happened at Bible study last Wednesday. We were at the house of people who had an infant. One of the Bible study participants who was originally from Germany brought a copy of an old children’s book to show the new mom and dad. It was called “Der Struwwelpeter”
The book is full of stories about children who were naughty and the horrible, horrible fates they suffered because of it. My mom had an old copy of this book, and I used to love to look at it. I was delighted to see all these old stories again.
Anyone who has seen this book turns instantly to the story of the boy who wouldn’t stop sucking his thumbs. They want to see this picture:
His mom warned him that the guy with the scissors would come, but the boy didn’t listen. Now he doesn’t have any thumbs. Let that be a lesson to you, boys and girls.
