Long Hair

A young boy had just gotten his driver’s permit and enquired of his father, 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 settle for the offer, and they agreed on it. After about six weeks they went in to the study, where his father said, “Son, I’ve been real proud. You’ve 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 real 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, Moses had long hair and there’s even a strong argument that Jesus had long hair also.”

To this his father replied, “Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?”

  1. Ajay, I’m reading awful stories online about attacks in Mumbai … please drop a post to confirm you’re OK?

  2. Am good. Far away from where the action is at, though one blast went off at a location that I had passed less than an hour earlier. There is still two hostage situations at two hotels in South Mumbai.

  3. Thanks for checking in, I’m glad to know you’re safe.

    It’s a strange thing this online life; although we’ve never met, and in likelihood never will, I now “know” someone in Mumbai and was worried about you.

    Connections are created which are both real and virtual, and they have true meaning … something to ponder over a drink.

    Once again, glad to know all’s well.
