I was testing children in my Glasgow Sunday
school class to see if they understood the
concept of getting into heaven.
I asked them, "If I sold my house and my
car, had a big jumble sale and gave all my
money to the church, would that get me
"NO!" the children answered.
"If I cleaned the church every day, mowed
the garden and kept everything tidy, would
that get me into heaven?"
Again, the answer was 'No!'
By now I was starting to smile.
"Well, then, if I was kind to animals and
gave sweeties to all the children, and
loved my husband, would that get me
Again, they all answered 'No!'
I was just bursting with pride for them.
I continued, "Then how can I get into heaven?"
A six year old boy shouted,
"Yuv goat tae be ~Sweary~' deid"
Kinda brings a wee tear tae yir e'e...
