He was a young Pastor and as usual the enemy would try to stir up trouble in the family just before church ... so they were running late getting into town ... and he was speeding.
Then to top it off, he looked in the review mirror only to see the lights of the Highway Patrol ........... busted! Already late for church and figuring he'd try for leniency, he quickly slapped his Bible on the dash of his car as the trooper walked up to the window and asked to see his drivers license.
Looking at his name and title on the license, the trooper asked, "You're a Reverend huh?" The young Pastor affirmed that.
The trooper then began writing out a speeding ticket and said, "Well Reverend; your speedometer runneth over."
As the trooper handed him the ticket and started to walk away, his last comment was, "Oh, by the way .... the Bible on the dash .... nice touch."
