A teenage boy had just passed his driving test, and he plucked up the courage to ask his father as to when they could discuss his use of the car.
His father said that he would make a deal with his son: “Son, if you bring your grades up from a C to a B average, if you study your Bible a little, and you also get your hair cut, then we’ll talk about the car.”
His son thought about that for a moment, decided that he would settle for the offer, and they agreed on it.
About six weeks later, his father said, “Son, I can see that you have brought your grades up, and I have observed that you have been studying your Bible. However, I am disappointed you haven’t had your hair cut.
The boy said, “You know, Dad. I have been thinking about that, and I noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair, and there’s even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair.”
To this his father replied, “Yes that’s true son, but did you also notice that they all WALKED everywhere they went!”
