Joke of the Week

CHILDREN'S MESSAGE

A preacher was giving the children's message during the worship service. For this part of the service, he would gather all the children around him and give a brief lesson before dismissing them for children's worship.

On this particular Sunday, he was using squirrels for an object lesson on industry and preparation. He started out by saying, "I'm going to describe something, and I want you to raise your hand when you know what it is." The children nodded eagerly.

"This thing lives in trees (pause) and eats nuts (pause)..." No hands went up.

"And it is gray (pause) and has a long bushy tail (pause)..."

The children were looking at each other, but still no hands raised. "And it jumps from branch to branch (pause) and chatters and flips its tail when it's excited (pause)..."

Finally one little boy tentatively raised his hand. The preacher breathed a sigh of relief and called on him.

"Well...," said the boy, "I know the answer must be Jesus... but it sure sounds like a squirrel to me!"
