Smiles help a merry heart.

Bible and a Haircut

A young boy had just gotten his driver’s permit and inquired of his father if they could discuss his use of the car. His father said he’d make a deal with his son.

“You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, get your hair cut and we’ll talk about the car.”

The boy thought about that for a moment decided he’d settle for the offer and they agreed on it.

After about six weeks his father said, “Son, I’m real proud of you. You brought your grades up and I’ve observed that you have been studying your Bible,  but I’m disappointed you haven’t gotten your hair cut.”

The young man paused a moment then said, “You know, Dad, I’ve been thinking about that, and I’ve 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 a strong argument that Jesus had long hair.

And his father replied, “Did you also notice that they all walked everywhere they went?”

All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith. Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith. Proverbs 15:15-17

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. Proverbs 17:22
