Jim Bob was from the country. One day, he came upon a pig in the middle of the road. Not wanting the pig to get hit, Jim Bob picked up the pig and put it in the passenger side of his truck. A police officer saw him a few minutes later and pulled him over. The cop instructed Jim Bob to take the pig to the zoo.
The next day, the same officer saw Jim Bob driving down the street, with the same pig sitting in his truck once again. The officer pulled Jim Bob over.
“Didn’t I tell you to take that pig to the zoo?”
“Yes, sir. And that’s just what I did,” Jim Bob replied.
“So what are you doing with the pig today?”
“I’m taking him to the movies.”
Jim Bob was like most men. He struggled to understand the voice of authority. If you have that same problem, may I humbly suggest this: in order for you to get over what is to be under you, you must get under what is to be over you.
Translation: Learn to walk in obedience to God.
