The Long-Haired Youngster
Published on Tue 16 July 2002
A young man comes home and says, "Dad, just got my driver's license and would like to use the family car."
Father replies, "Okay, son. But, first, you have to get good grades in school, keep your room clean, make certain the yard is neat, and cut your hair. Come back in a few months and then we'll see."
Well, several months pass and the young man comes into the house with his report card in his hand.
"Dad, I got great marks on my report card. I've been keeping my room as neat as a pin, and the yard is always ship-shape. How about letting me use the car?"
Father replies, "That's all true, but son, you didn't cut your hair."
The son says, "But dad, even Jesus had long hair!"
Father replies, "Yes, son, you're perfectly right. And he walked everywhere he went."
