How Do You Spell Love

by

E. E. Perry

 

(The scene is a classroom. There is a teacher and at least three children.)

TEACHER

Johnny, how do you spell cat?

JOHNNY

C-A-T, cat.

TEACHER

That's right. Sandy, how do you spell dog?

SANDY

D-O-G, dog.

TEACHER

Very good. Julie, how do you spell love?

JULIE

J-E-S-U-S.

(Other children laugh.)

TEACHER

Now, now, children, it's not nice to laugh. Now, Julie, let's try again. How do you spell love?

JULIE

J-E-S-U-S.

(Children laugh again.)

TEACHER

Children! I'm not going to tell you again! It's not nice to laugh. Now, Julie, why do you keep spelling Jesus when I ask you to spell love?

JULIE

Because Jesus is the greatest example we have of love. The Bible tells us that God loved us so much that He sent Jesus to save us from our sins. So, every time I think about love, I think about Jesus, and His willingness to die on the cross for me.

TEACHER

Hum. I see. Johnny, how do you spell love?

 

JOHNNY

J-E-S-U-S.

TEACHER

And you, Sandy?

SANDY

J-E-S-U-S.

TEACHER

(to audience)

What about you? How do you spell love?
