|A Car For Christmas
Danny had recently passed his driving test and decided to ask his
clergyman father if there was any chance of him getting a car for
Christmas, which was yet some months away. 'Okay.' said his father 'I
tell you what I'll do. If you can get your 'A' level grades up to 'A's
and 'B's, study your bible and get your hair cut, I'll consider the
matter very seriously.'
A couple of months later Danny went back to his father who said 'I'm
really impressed by your commitment to your studies. Your grades are
excellent and the work you have put into your bible studies is very
encouraging. However, I have to say I'm very disappointed that you
haven't had your hair cut yet.
Danny was a smart young man who was never lost for an answer. 'Look dad.
In the course of my bible studies I've noticed in the illustrations that
Moses, John the Baptist, Samson and even Jesus had long hair.' 'Yes. I'm
aware of that...' replied his father '... but did you also notice they
walked wherever they went?'
