George And The Dragon

A weary beggar approached a roadside inn that wore the name, “George and the Dragon.” Knocking on the office door, he was met by a hateful and bitter woman who screamed for him to leave the property.

Mustering up enough nerve, he knocked a second time and asked, “May I have a word with George?”

I guess we have all encountered “dragons” in real life. They are found down at the grocery store, on school property, in shopping malls, at work, and sometimes even in church and at home! Maybe, if we are honest, we would admit to being a “dragon” at certain times.

Some advice here from Jesus: “You are the salt of the earth, the light of the world, glorify God” (Mt. 5:13-16) and “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (Mt. 7:12). More advice from Paul: “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers” (Eph. 4:29). These verses are “dragon killers.”
