How To Get To Heaven
- Thanks to Amy Huang RN for this "out of the mouths of babes" gem:
I was testing the children in my Sunday school class to see if they
understood the concept of getting to heaven. I asked them,
"If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my
money to the church, would that get me into Heaven?"
"NO!" the children answered.
"If I cleaned the church every day, mowed the yard, and kept
everything neat and tidy, would that get me into Heaven?"
Again, the answer was, "NO!"
By now I was starting to smile. Hey, this was fun! "Well, then, if I
was kind to animals and gave candy to all the children, and loved my
husband, would that get me into Heaven?" I asked them again.
Again, they all answered, "NO!"
I was just bursting with pride for them. Well, I continued, "then how
can I get into Heaven?"
A five-year-old boy shouted out, "YOU GOTTA BE DEAD."
