Hole in One

There was this preacher who was an avid golfer. Every chance he could get, he could
be found on the golf course swinging away. It was an obsession. One Sunday was a
picture perfect day for golfing. The sun was out, no clouds in the sky, and the
temperature was just right.

The preacher was in a quandary as to what to do, and shortly, the urge to play golf
overcame him. He called an assistant to tell him that he was sick and could not do
church, packed the car up, and drove three hours to a golf course where no one
would recognize him. Happily, he began to play the course.

An angel up above was watching the preacher and was quite perturbed. He went to
God and said, "Look at the preacher. He should be punished for what he is doing."

God nodded in agreement. The preacher teed up on the first hole. He swung at the
ball, and it sailed effortlessly through the air and landed right in the cup three
hundred and fifty yards away. A picture perfect hole-in-one. He was amazed and

The angel was a little shocked. He turned to God and said, "Begging Your pardon, but
I thought you were going to punish him."

God smiled. "Think about it -- who can he tell?"
