A man took his blonde girlfriend to her first football game. After the game, he asked her how she liked it.
“I loved the game,” she said. “But I can’t understand why everyone was killing each other over 25 cents.”
“Over 25 cents?” asked her boyfriend. “What do you mean – 25 cents?”
She explained, “All the fans kept screaming, every time they hiked the ball, ‘Get the quarter back! Get the quarter back!'”
That is what is known as a simple misunderstanding. Unfortunately, life is also full of huge misunderstandings. Such as good works get us into heaven. Or God only loves us when we “live right.” Or there are many roads to heaven.
Clear communication doesn’t matter so much when you are watching a football game. But when playing the game of life, it means everything.
