A Cajun was stopped by a game warden in Southern Louisiana recently with two ice chests of fish, leaving a bayou well known for its fishing.
The game warden asked the man, “Do you have a license to catch those fish?”
“Naw, ma fren, I ain’t got none of dem, no. Dese here are my pet fish.”
“Ya. Avery night I take dese here fish down to de bayou and let dem swim ’round for a while. Den I whistle and dey jump rat back inta dis here ice chest and I take dem home.”
“That’s a bunch of hooey! Fish can’t do that!”
The Cajun looked at the game warden for a moment and then said, “It’s de truth ma’ fren. I’ll show you. It really works.”
“Okay, I’ve GOT to see this!”
The Cajun poured the fish into the bayou and stood and waited.
After several minutes, the game warden turned to him and said, “Well?”
“Well, what?” Said the Cajun.
“When are you going to call them back?”
“Call who back?”
“I don’t make jokes, “Will Rogers once said truthfully. “I just watch the government and report the facts.”
Thought for the day
“This will continue until we are . . . mature, just as Christ is, and we will be completely like him” (Ephesians 4:13 CEV).
Spiritual maturity is neither instant nor automatic; it is a gradual, progressive development that will take the rest of your life as God helps you make healing choices.
