Your Son Has No Fear
Dec 6, 2005
[ A true story. ]
A child is sent home with a note for his father. The father opens it up and reads, "Your son has no fear. Please see me."
Unsure whether it's a compliment or a complaint, the father inquires further. His son tells him, "I sat on a seat that was marked for the teacher. I told the bus driver that I would relinquish the seat when the teacher came, but he didn't listen. And neither did I."
The father goes to see the principal and sure enough, the principal reiterates his complaint, "Your son has no fear. That's his biggest problem."
Perhaps someday we will rule by love, instead of fear.
