I love the story of the little boy who told his mother he had determined that he was six feet tall. When she asked how he had arrived at this conclusion, he told her he had used his shoe to measure and that he was six shoes tall. With a loving smile she sweetly told him that his shoe was not twelve inches long. He insisted, "But, Mom, it’s got to be ’cause my foot’s in it !" What was wrong with his conclusion? He was unaware of the true standard of determining length. He knew nothing of uniform standards of weight and measurement. He was sincere, but mistaken. His conclusion was innocent and makes us laugh, but often a false standard can reap tragic consequences. I read about a terrible school bus accident. Returning from a sporting event on a foggy night, the driver missed a turn, plunging tragically over a mountain precipice killing everyone. What caused the accident? The fog? The driver? It was discovered that someone thought it would be a good joke to alter the road sign. No one laughs at this story. An inaccurate standard of authority brought death and destruction.
