Tuesday Trench Truth
Two men, Robert and James, applied for an engineering position. Both
applicants having the same qualifications were asked to take a test by the
Upon completion of the exam both men only missed one of the questions.
The manager went to Robert and said, "Thank you for your interest, but
we've decided to give James the job."
Robert replied, "Why? We both correctly answered nine questions. I believe
I should get this job, especially since I've grown up in this town and James
just moved here."
The manager said, "We made our decision not on the correct answers, but
on the question you missed."
"How could one incorrect answer be better than the other?" asked Robert.
"Simple," said the manager. "James put down on question #5, I don't
know, and you put down, Neither do I."
Oh, my gosh, have you ever been tempted to cheat on a test? Or think
about telling a lie? Did you know a half truth or an omission is considered
cheating as well? I mean think about it, we sort of get a feeling of hiding
when we’re thinking about cheating, or not being completely honest, right?
Like we’re ducking and hiding, as if God can’t see us!!!
Friends, no matter what the situation, whether it involves half-truths,
cheating, omission or straight-out lying, God always brings the truth to light!
Always means always, but it doesn’t always mean on our timetable!
