Imagine, if you will that you don’t like bugs. You could even say that you prefer mice to bugs. Some are tolerable, but you especially dislike spiders. I know that this will not be a stretch for some of you.
Now imagine if you will it is a Sunday morning. You are sitting in Sunday School. The room is quiet except for the teacher. ( Does any of this sound familiar?) You are busy listening, glancing down at your Bible and Sunday school book, and just for hypothetical sake, you happen to see something moving on your dress. Your brain instantly registers it is a spider.
- Calmly squish it between your fingers.
- Control yourself just enough, making a quiet “eww it’s a spider” sound and brush it away, or
- Give into your primal urges, scream bloody murder, scare the teacher and the rest of you class over a spider that is the size of a pencil eraser.
- Decide that you will never go to Sunday school again in that classroom.
