The Use of the Car
A young boy had just got his driver’s permit and inquired of his father, an evangelist, if they could discuss the use of the car. His father took him to the study and said to the boy, “I’ll make a deal with you, Son. You bring your grades up from a C to a B-average, study your Bible a little, and get your hair cut and we’ll talk about the car.”
The boy thought about that for a moment and decided that he’d best settle for the offer, and they agreed.
After about six weeks the boy came back and again asked his father about the car. Again they went to the study where his father said, “Son, I’ve been real proud of you. You’ve brought your grades up, and I’ve observed that you’ve been studying your Bible and participating a lot more in the Bible study class on Sunday morning. But I’m real disappointed seeing as you haven’t got 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 Sampson had long hair. Moses had long hair; John the Baptizer had long hair, and there’s even strong argument that Jesus Himself had long hair.”
To which his father replied, “You’re right, son, and did you also notice that they all WALKED everywhere they went?”
