Beard survives

Despite the distaff side verbal assault my beard survives. This is due to stubbornness and good hermeneutics.The latter because this morning I read Ezekiel 5:1 with its clear instructions to shave off the beard. But good hermeneutics means you read in context. The command was to Ezekiel not Graham. Thankfully I am not one of those evangelicals who say, "The Lord gave me a verse this morning". He gives me 66 books every day though average reading is only four chapters daily.
