SHORT    2'2m0f Two monks discuss sin vs height

TOBIAS -- Monsenior?

MONSENIOR -- Yes, Brother Tobias?

TOBIAS -- I have made a discovery.

MONSENIOR -- A discovery?

TOBIAS -- Yes, it first began when I was reading Romans 3:23. 
See here? All have sinned and fall SHORT.

MONSENIOR --  And...

TOBIAS -- And it got me thinking. What if being short is 
punishment for being a sinner.

MONSENIOR --  Excuse me?

TOBIAS -- Look here: (pages turn) Isaiah 59:1: Surely the arm of 
the Lord is not too short.

MONSENIOR -- And that means...

TOBIAS -- Well, obviously, Isaiah is saying that the Lord has 
long arms, which means he's tall and sinners are short.

MONSENIOR -- Sinners are...

TOBIAS -- Short. It's amazing! When you're looking for it there 
it is. (pages turn) Hebrews 4:1 ...let us be careful that none 
of you be found to have fallen short.

MONSENIOR -- I'm not sure that SHORT means...

TOBIAS -- See, once you've discovered this tremendous insight, 
other scriptures take on a whole new meaning. Like this one, 
(pages turn) Proverbs 19:11 A man's wisdom gives him patience. 
It is to his glory to OVERLOOK an offense.

MONSENIOR -- Brother Tobias, don't get too excited about this...

TOBIAS -- And this one: (pages turn) Psalm 118:7 The Lord is 
with me. He is my helper. I will look in triumph ON my enemies.

MONSENIOR --  Brother Tobias, be careful that you don't...

TOBIAS -- Here's one that will get you thinking: Isaiah 41:10 I 
will strengthen you and help you, I will UPhold you with my 
righteous right hand.

MONSENIOR -- So what you're saying is that dwarfs and little 
people are that way because they're sinful?

TOBIAS -- According to the Bible.

MONSENIOR -- Brother Tobias, this wouldn't have anything to do with the fact 
that you're six feet three inches tall would it?

TOBIAS --  Ah, well, ah...

MONSENIOR -- I have another verse for you to consider.

TOBIAS --  Sure. Why not?

MONSENIOR -- Proverbs 29:23.

TOBIAS -- (pages turn) 29:...23 Here it is: A man's pride 
brings him... LOW. (afar) Good night, Monsenior.

MONSENIOR -- (afar) Good night, Brother Tobias.
