Sermon on Lying

A minister told his congregation, “Next week I plan to preach about
the sin of lying. To help you understand my sermon, I want you all to
read Mark 17.”

The following Sunday, the minister asked for a show of hands from
those who read Mark 17. Every hand went up. The minister smiled and
said, “Mark has only sixteen chapters. I will now proceed with my
sermon on the sin of lying.”
