One Sunday, a priest decides he doesn’t want to go to church so he goes golfing instead.|
He calls his deacon to tell him he is sick and the deacon agrees to preach on his behalf.
So the priest grabs his golf clubs. He drives for a while, finding a course where he wouldn’t be recognized, and starts playing his game.
He tees up on the first whole, squares off, and hits the ball.
To his great surprise, it flies perfectly off the tee, heads downrange, and onto the green.
To his further surprise, when he gets to the green, he finds that the ball had landed in the hole.
The priest is jubilant. Never, in 20 years of golfing has he been able to hit a hole in one.
He grabs his ball and moves onto the next hole. There he tees up, takes a few practice swings, and hits the ball.
Again, it flies perfectly down the course, and this time before he even heads down the course he is sure the ball is in the hole.
Hole after hole this continues. The priest is jubilant. It’s the best golf game he has ever had!
Up in heaven, Jesus is sitting beside God watching the priest. He looks over and says, “Are you really going to let him get away with this?”
God smiles. “Who is he going to tell?”????
