There was a minister out taking a walk on a beautiful street. He noticed a small boy attempting to ring the doorbell on the porch of a house. The boy was short and the doorbell was higher than usual. The boy could not quite reach it.

The minister stepped up to the porch beside the boy and reached up and aggressively rang the doorbell for the boy. "And now what, young man?" he asked the boy.

"Now," the boy said. "We run like crazy!"

Things are not always as they appear.
