Jr. High overachiever, but at what

The other day, during class, I asked the students to write down some of their recent sins. I wanted them to be honest and open – knowing no one else was going to look at their paper. After thinking and writing for a little bit, they started stating how many they listed.

student 1 – I can only think of 3
student 2 – me too, that’s all I got
student 3 – I’ve got 4. I’m an overachiever. (with enthusiasm in the voice)

This student wasn’t thinking that having more sins than someone else may not be something to brag about.
