Time to Laugh

Oops. How embarrasing

We are taking a short break in our mini series of media articles about Christian House Sitters. I felt it was time for something a little different but I will return to the series in a few weeks.

A friend sent me the following story. I can’t credit the original author as I have no idea who wrote it but it was too good not to share.

The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection. The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.Impatient Driver

As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was  searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell. After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door.

She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.

He said, ”I’m very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, making lewd gestures to the guy in front of you and, cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the ‘What Would Jesus Do’ bumper sticker, the ‘Choose Life’ license plate holder, the ‘Follow Me to Sunday-School’ bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally . . . I assumed you had stolen the car.”

Ask yourself . . .
Am I just a Sunday morning Christian?
Do I set a good Christian example everyday?
Think about it . . ..
Being a Christian is a whole lot like being on Candid Camera. When you least expect it, expect it!

PS  James 1:27 (NIV) says: Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.  You can do something now. Have a look at http://www.tlc-childrenstrust.org
