â€œYeah,â€ Samantha agreed. â€œDid I understand correctly? We are to research mud?â€ Samantha snarled her nose.
â€œWell, this IS a geology class.â€ Angela brushed her hair back from her face with a flip of her hand. â€œSee you at Bible Study tonight.â€
Two days later the geology professor scanned his class. â€œClear your desk except for one sheet of paper and a pencil,â€ he intoned. â€œYou have ten minutes to tell me everything you know about â€˜mudâ€™.â€
While Angela was writing furiously, one young man tossed his sheet on the professorâ€™s desk with one surly statement, â€œThis assignment was clear as mud.â€
After class Angela met up with Samantha. â€œThat assignment turned out more interesting than I anticipated.â€
Samanthaâ€™s eyebrows shot up. â€œHow so?â€
â€œWell, one website I looked at claims that playing in mud boosts the immune system and mental health. Other websites implied that mud baths can help the body heal.â€
â€œRight,â€ exclaimed Samantha. â€œThat made me think about Jesus putting mud on the blind manâ€™s eyes.â€
â€œFor sure!â€ Angela nodded her head. â€œMaybe that wasnâ€™t such a crazy thing to do after all.â€
Samantha chuckled. â€œYeah, God used mud to reveal His truth. The Pharisees thought Jesusâ€™ teaching was â€˜clear as mudâ€™, but He made the blind manâ€™s sight â€˜clear with mudâ€™!â€
