ImageCar Trouble
As the owner of an old clunker, I was used to dealing with a variety of car breakdowns.
One day at the supermarket, just after I had filled my trunk with groceries, I noticed
a stream of fluid pouring out of the bottom of the car. I knew I had to get home before the car was once again out of action.
When I arrived, I asked my husband to take a look at the problem. Expecting the worst, I braced myself for his diagnosis.
When he came back in, he was smiling.
“It’s apple juice,” he said.
You Can Walk
A young boy had just gotten his driver’s permit and inquired of his father, an evangelist, if they could discuss his use of the car.
His father said, “I’ll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, get your hair cut and we’ll talk about the car.”
Well, the boy thought about that for a moment and decided that he’d settle for the offer and they agreed on it. After about six weeks, they went into the study, where his father said, “Son, I’ve been real proud.”
“You brought your grades up and I’ve observed that you have been studying your Bible and participating a lot more in the Bible Study groups. But, I’m a bit disappointed, since you haven’t gotten your hair cut.”
The young man paused a moment and then said, “You know, Dad, I’ve been thinking about that and I’ve noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair even Moses had long hair.”
To this, his father replied, “Did you also notice that they all walked everywhere they went?”
