Friday Funnie: Just A Little Squirrely

Do you ever teach kids in Sunday School or Children's Church? This little story sounds like something that would happen to me!
Sister Smith invited the children to come to the front of the small church for the children's sermon. She had prepared an object lesson using squirrels as an example of industry and planning ahead. She requested that the boys and girls raise their hands as soon as they knew what she was describing.

"This thing lives in trees [pause]
and eats nuts [pause]."

No hands went up.

"It is gray [pause]
and has a long bushy tail [pause]."

The children looked at each other, but no hands were raised.

"And it jumps from branch to branch [pause] and chatters when it gets excited [pause]."

Finally a little boy tentatively raised his hand.

Sister Smith breathed a sigh of relief and called on him.

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