MOSES AND THE RED SEA
Nine-year-old Joey was asked by his mother what he had learned
in Sunday School.'Well, Mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses
behind enemy lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of
Egypt. When he got to the Red Sea, he had his army build a pontoon
bridge and all the people walked across safely.
Then he radioed headquarters for reinforcements. They sent bombers
to blow up the bridge and all the Israelites were saved.'
'Now, Joey, is that really what your teacher taught you?' his Mother asked.
'Well, no, Mom. But, if I told it the way the teacher did, you'd
never believe it!'
THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD
A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize
one of the most quoted passages in the Bible - Psalm 23. She gave
the youngsters a month to learn the chapter.
Little Rick was excited about the task - but he just couldn't
remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past
the first line.
On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in
front of the congregation, Ricky was so nervous. When it was his turn,
he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly,
'The Lord is my Shepherd, and that's all I need to know.'

Good Samaritan. She asked the class, 'If you saw a person lying on

A Rabbi said to a precocious six-year-old boy, 'So your mother says

The little boy replied, 'Thank God he's in bed!'
UNTIMELY ANSWERED PRAYER
During the minister's prayer one Sunday, there was a loud
whistle from one of the back pews. Tommy's mother was horrified. She
pinched him into silence and, after church, asked, 'Tommy, whatever
made you do such a thing?'
Tommy answered soberly, 'I asked God to teach me to whistle, and He did!'
TIME TO PRAY
A pastor asked a little boy if he said his prayers every night.
'Yes, sir.' the boy replied.
'And, do you always say them in the morning, too?' the pastor
asked. No sir,' the boy replied. 'I ain't scared in the daytime.'
ALL MEN / ALL GIRLS
When my daughter, Kelli, said her bedtime prayers, she would
bless every family member, every friend, and every animal (current and
For several weeks, after we had finished the nightly prayer,
Kelli would say, 'All girls.'
This soon became part of her nightly routine, to include this

do you always add the part about all girls?'
Her response, 'Because everybody always finish their prayers by saying

food was being served. When Little Johnny received his plate, he
started eating right away.
'Johnny! Please wait until we say our prayer.' said his mother.
'I don't need to,' the boy replied.
'Of course, you do.' his mother insisted. 'We always say a
prayer before eating at our house.'
'That's at our house.' Johnny explained. 'But this is Grandma's
house and she knows how to cook!'
