Bob came out of a local store, only to be greeted by a motorcycle cop writing a ticket. Bob asked, “Why the ticket?”
The officer replied, “Your tags are expired.”
Bob responded, “You are a pencil-necked idiot!”
The cop proceeded to add three more tickets to the car’s windshield. “What do you have to say now?” he asked Bob.
Bob: “I don’t care. That’s not my car!”
Bob could certainly use a dose of love for his fellow man/cop. The Bible says, “Above all, love each other” (1 Peter 4:8). Loving others is a choice. But the interesting thing is, the more we love others, the better off we become.
Recovery Step: George Burns said, “Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.” But here’s the thing. You simply have to connect with someone in your part of the world, if you want to be well.
