Questionable Advice

A man having car trouble pulled his vehicle to the side of an isolated country road. After several minutes of trying in vain to figure out the problem, he heard a voice behind him. “I think your fuel filter is clogged.”

He was startled, because he had thought he was all alone. He quickly turned to see who had spoken, but he saw no one, only an old cow chewing her cud. Sure that the voice had been his imagination, he turned his attention back to the stalled vehicle.

A few minutes later, he heard the same voice say, “I think your fuel filter is clogged.”

He did an abrupt about-face and demanded of the cow, “Did you just say something?!”

“Yes”, she replied. “I said that I think your fuel filter is clogged.”

Terrified, the man ran toward the farm house in the distance. Finding an old man out in the barnyard, he frantically told him what had just happened.

The old man just smiled, shook his head and stated, “I wouldn’t put too much stock in what you heard. Why, Ole Bessie don’t know a thing about cars!”

Be careful where you get your advice!

“The lips of the wise spread knowledge; not so the hearts of fools.”—Proverbs 15:7.
