The Mayor’s Burden
One of the burdens of office of the small town mayor was his brother in-law, a fellow who liked to throw his or, rather, his in-law’s political weight around. The mayor had instructed his policemen and other city officials to treat him just like they would any other taxpayer.
The brother-in-law got a ticket for overtime parking. He immediately descended in fury on police headquarters, waving the ticket and sputtering, “Hey, do you know who I am?”
The desk sergeant surveyed him calmly, picked up his telephone and dialed the mayor’s office. “Tell the mayor,” he said to the secretary, “that his brother-in-law is down here and can’t remember his name.”
“Nothing is worse than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.”
Thought for the day
“From such terrible dangers of death he saved us, and will save us; and we have placed our hope in him that he will save us again” 2 Corinthians 1:10
God is watching over you, so don’t listen to your fears. This is a choice: Trust God, and don’t give in to your fears
