The price of going to the barber was quite exorbitant in a particular city. Hardly anyone could afford a full treatment but a man came into a barber shop with a little boy & asked for the full treatment - shave, shampoo, manicure, haircut, etc.
After the barber had finished with him, the man placed little Johnny on the chair.
"I'm going to buy a green tie to wear for the parade," he said. "I'll be back in a few minutes."
When little Johnny's haircut was complete & the man still hadn't returned, the barber said, "Looks like your daddy's forgotten all about you."
"That wasn't my daddy," said Little Johnny. "He just walked up, took me by the hand & said, 'Come on, kid, we're going to get a free haircut!'"
Gal 6:7 (CEV): “You cannot fool God, so don’t make a fool of yourself! You will harvest what you plant.”
“There is nothing more foolish than an act of wickedness; there is no wisdom equal to that of obeying God.” - Albert Barnes.
