No difference

A doctor in Missouri was driving between hospital calls one evening, exceeding the speed limit. Suddenly a police car appeared behind him, signalling for him to pull over. So the doctor picked up his stethoscope and held it up for the policeman to see. But when he looked into his rear-view mirror he saw a smiling cop waving his own symbol of authority in the air – his pistol. It was one of those moments when reality dawned; like everyone being equal before the law, no exceptions, not even for doctors.
It reminds me of what the Bible says about God’s impartiality, ‘There is no difference, for all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.’ But also ‘There is no difference…the same Lord richly blesses all who call on him.’
