Actions Speak Louder Than Words

The light turned yellow just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crossing, 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 looking policeman. 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 effects. He said, "I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, making rude gestures and verbally cursing like there was no tomorrow.

I noticed the What Would Jesus Do bumper sticker, the Choose Life license plate holder, the Follow Me to Sunday-School bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian Fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally....I assumed you had stolen the car."

Moral of the story

Practice what you preach; often people can’t hear you because of what you’re doing, have faith in the process of life and adopt the mindset of a lifelong learner.
