Recently one of our teachers had a conversation with two young ladies who stayed after class. One of them was wearing nail polish, which started a discussion about prayer. The girl without the nail polish said,
“It means she doesn’t pray. We cannot pray with painted nails.”
I asked her to explain why this is, and she responded by telling me that she doesn’t know exactly, but that’s just what she has been told. She then planned to ask and find out why she has always followed this rule. Both girls expressed the desire to hear more about the Bible and to learn more about what this teacher believes.
