HOW HONEST ARE YOU

A police officer stepped up to the driver's window of the car he had just pulled over for speeding. "What's the problem, officer?" asked the driver.

"You were going at least 75 in a 55 zone," said the officer.

"No, sir. I ws going no more than 65."

"Oh, Harry. When I looked over you were going 80 miles an hour," said the man's wife sitting in the passenger's seat. The man gave her a dirty look.

"I'm also going to have to write you a ticket for a broken tail light," said the officer.

"A broken tail light? I didn't know I had a broken tail lights" exclaimed the man.

"Oh, Harry, you've known about that broken tail light for weeks. You said you weren't going to get it fixed until you had to," said the wife, who got another dirty look from her husband.

"I'm also going to give you a citation for not having your seat belt on," said the officer.

"But I just took it off when you pulled me over," protested the man.

"Oh, Harry, you never wear your seat belt. You say it's too much trouble," said the wife.

Exasperated, the man turned to his wife and yelled, "If you don't shut your mouth I'm going to shut it for you!"

The police officer turned to the woman and asked, "Ma'am, does your husband talk to you this way all the time?"

"No, sir," she said. "Only when he's drunk."  Lying has become almost acceptable in today's society to avoid taking responsibility. Just like the man whose wife was sitting beside him in the car we, too, have someone beside us listening to everything we say and knows if we are being honest or not. His name is Jesus!

For His Cause.
