Sad but True
Unfortunately many homes, yes even so-called Christian homes, are like the one in which the little girl pointed to the Bible on the mantle that was never opened, and said to her mother, “Whose book is that?”
Her mother quite startled by her daughters question replied, “Why honey, don’t you know? That is God’s book!”
The child demonstrating that she had a very practical turn to her mind said, “Don’t you think that we had better give it back to him? No one around here ever reads it.”
A minister waited in line to have his car filled with gas just before a long holiday weekend. The attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars ahead of him in front of the service station. Finally, the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump.
“Preacher,” said the young man, “I’m sorry about the delay. It seems as if everyone waits until the last minute to get ready for a long trip.”
The minister chuckled, “I know what you mean. It’s the same in my business.”
The Junior Sunday School Teacher asked her eight eager 10-year-olds if they would give $1,000,000 to the missionaries.
“YES!” they all screamed!!
“Would you give $1,000?” Again they shouted “YES!”
“How about $100?” “Oh, YES we would!” they all agreed!!
“Would you give just a dollar to the missionaries?” she asked.
The boys exclaimed “YES!” just as before except for Johnnie.
“Johnnie,” the teacher said as she noticed the boy clutching his pocket, “why didn’t you say ‘YES’ this time?”
“Well,” he stammered, “I HAVE a dollar.”
