A lady calmly strolled into the drug store in her small town and walked up to the counter. The pharmacist asked, “What can we do for you?”
“I would like some arsenic”, she replied.
“I’m afraid I can’t let you have that. May I ask what you intend to do with arsenic?”
“I need it to poison my husband.”
Alarmed, the pharmacist exclaimed, “You’re talking about murder! I can’t be a part of this! It’s completely unethical!”
Without a word, the lady reached into her purse, pulled out a photograph, and handed it to the man. It was a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist’s wife.
The pharmacist studied the photo for a few seconds, and then said, “This is different! Why didn’t you tell me you had a prescription?!”
“…Each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.”—Ephesians 5:33.
