One Tough Secret

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 excited. 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?”
