"When God passed out brains, you thought he said trains and asked for a slow one."

"You're so dumb it took you an hour to make minute rice."

"You're face is very becoming. It's becoming uglier every time I see it."

Comedian Don Rickles made a living and a lot of people laugh with silly insults like this. But it's hard to laugh when the barbs are really sharp and pointed right at you.

The Bible says, "When they hurled insults at {Jesus}, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats" (1 Peter 2:23). Instead, he modeled for us one of his own lessons from the Sermon on the Mount. He turned the other cheek.
