Love one another

A man was being tailgated by a stressed out woman on a busy boulevard. Suddenly, the light in front of him turned yellow. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by speeding 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, finger printed, 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, signaling hand profanity to the guy in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at him. Then I noticed the ‘Choose Life’ license plate holder, the ‘What Would Jesus Do’ bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk.”

“Naturally. I assumed you had stolen the car.”


Let’s not just talk about being a Christian, but truly live the life of one. 1 John 3:11 – “Love one another.”

  1. That was a very good story! Often, we do just talk the talk and not walk the walk of Christ. All of us who have been “churched” know the right things to SAY, but how many of us are willing to DO the right things, even when they are an inconvenience to ourselves?
