Puting your foot in it.
A very dear friend of mine (We'll call him Mr Smth) was walking along the road with a lady when she asked him this question.
"Mr Smith" she asked "What do you think about cremation?"
Mr. Smith replied without hesitation by asking a question of the lady. "You know the scriptural principle don't you?"
"No" the lady replied
"You bury treasure but you burn rubbish" Mr Smth enlightened her, "But why do you ask?"
"We cremated my mother last year!" was her answer
It always pay to find out why the question is being asked.
