Where the world comes to study the Bible

Lunch Break

All morning, an instructor on my staff had been explaining leadership to a class of police recruits. Calling a man to the front of the class, he handed him a piece of paper on which was written: “You are in charge. Get everyone out of the room without causing a panic.”

The recruit was at a loss for words and returned to his seat.

The second man summoned tried: “Everybody outside. Go!” No one moved.

A third man glanced at the instructions, smiled and said, “All right, men. Break for lunch.” The room emptied in seconds.
