"But I Didn't Want To Cross The Street!"

A preacher friend and Marash Girl were chatting the other day about a sermon series she (the preacher, not Marash Girl) was planning.  The subject of the series was to be "The Good Samaritan".  Marash Girl began to laugh.  

"What are you laughing at?" asked the preacher.  

"The title of your sermon . . . it brought to mind a cartoon I saw many years ago -- a cartoon of a young Boy Scout tugging at the sleeves of an old woman, helping her across the street.  When the two arrived at the other side of the street, the old woman turned to the little Boy Scout and said, 'But I didn't want to cross the street!'
