Kids in church

3-year-old Reese:

‘Our Father, Who does art in heaven,

Harold is His name.

Amen.’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A little boy was overheard praying:

‘Lord, if you can’t make me a better boy, don’t worry about it.

I’m having a real good time like I am.’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After the christening of his baby brother in church,

Jason sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car.

His father asked him three times what was wrong.

Finally, the boy replied,

‘That preacher said he wanted us brought up in a Christian home,

and I wanted to stay with you guys.’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One particular four-year-old prayed,

‘And forgive us our trash baskets

as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets.’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Sunday school teacher asked her children as they

were on the way to church service,

‘And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?’

One bright little girl replied,

‘Because people are sleeping.’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin 5, and Ryan 3.

The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake.

Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson.

‘If Jesus were sitting here, He would say,

‘Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.’

Kevin turned to his younger brother and said,

‘Ryan, you be Jesus!’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A father was at the beach with his children

when the four-year-old son ran up to him,

grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore

where a seagull lay dead in the sand.

‘Daddy, what happened to him?’ the son asked.

‘He died and went to Heaven,’ the Dad replied.

The boy thought a moment and then said,

‘Did God throw him back down?’

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A wife invited some people to dinner.

At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said,

‘Would you like to say the blessing?’

‘I wouldn’t know what to say,’ the girl replied.

‘Just say what you hear Mommy say,’ the wife answered.

The daughter bowed her head and said,

‘Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?’

Decide to have a good day.
“Today is the day the Lord hath made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

2. Dress Up !!
The best way to dress up is to put on a smile.
A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.

Man looks at outward appearance;
but the Lord looks at the heart.”

I Samuel 16:7

3. Shut Up!!

Say nice things and learn to listen.
God gave us two ears and one mouth, so He must have meant
for us to do twice as much listening as talking.
“He who guards his lips guards his soul.”

Proverbs 13:3

4. Stand Up!!…
For what you believe in.
Stand for something or you will fall for anything..
“Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time,
we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good…”

5. Look Up !!…

To the Lord.
“I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me.”

Philippians
4:13

6. Reach Up !!…
For something higher.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not unto your own understanding.
In all your ways, acknowledge Him,
and He will direct your path.”

Proverbs 3:5-6

7. Lift Up !!…
Your Prayers.
“Do not worry about anything;
instead PRAY ABOUT
EVERYTHING.”

Philippians 4:6

Send this to the people you care about.
