Learning A Lesson A priest loved to striper fish. It was an obsession, but so far this year the weather had been so bad that he had not had a chance to get his beloved boat out and his get his favorite lures out of their box. Strangely though every Sunday the weather had been good, but of course Sunday is the day he has to go to work. The weather forcast was again good for the coming Sunday so he called a fellow priest claiming to have lost his voice and in bed with the flu. He asked if he could take over his sermon. The priest drove fifty miles to a nearby lake where he thought that no one would recognise him. An angel up in Heaven was keeping watch and saw what the priest was doing. He informed God, who agreed that he should do something. With the first cast of his line a huge fish gulped down the lure. For over an hour the priest fought the huge the fish. At the end when he finally landed the monster size fish it turned out to be a world record striper. Confused the angel asked God, "Why did you let him catch that huge fish? I thought you were going to teach him a lesson." God replied "I did. Who do you think he is going to tell?"
