John invited his mother over for dinner during the holidays. During the course of the meal, his mother couldn't help but notice how attractive John's roommate was. She had long been suspicious of a relationship between John and his roommate, and this only made her more curious.
Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between John and his roommate than met the eye. Reading his mom's thoughts, John volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you Julie and I are just roommates."
About a week later, Julie came to John saying, "Ever since your mother came to dinner I've been unable to locate the gravy ladle. You don't suppose she took it, do you?"
John said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll write her an email just to be sure."
So he sat and wrote: "Dear Mother: I'm not saying that you 'did' take the gravy ladle from my house, I'm not saying that you 'did not' take gravy ladle. But the fact remains that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinner."
Several hours later, John received the following email from his mother: "Dear Son: I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep with Julie, and I'm not saying that you 'do not' sleep with Julie. But the fact remains that if she were sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the gravy ladle by now! Love Mom!"
Run away from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. Or don't you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body. (1 Corinthians 6:18-20 NLT)
