A man was being tailgated by a stressed out woman on a busy boulevard.
Suddenly, 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.
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
He said, ''I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind
your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off 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 thechrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the
trunk; naturally...I assumed you had stolen the car .''
Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.
Dear Lord we pray that our life would show your love in all we say and do. We pray that we won’t say or act in a manor that would make those around us question whether or not we are a Christian. In Jesus Name, Amen
