The Bible from a Child's Perspective
Lost in the Translation
I told my daughter that we were going to church to worship God. She asked me if we should take along a bar of soap to "wash up" Jesus.
Perhaps I was mumbling, but when I tried to explain about God giving us everlasting life, my son thought it was quite generous of Him to give us His "last wife."
Two boys were walking home from Sunday School. They had just heard a firm teaching about Satan.
"What do you think about all that devil stuff?" one boy asked.
"Oh, I don't know," said the other one. "Remember Santa Claus? He turned out to be just your dad. The devil's probably the same thing."
My three children were in the Christmas pageant. I was so proud. My daughter was playing Mary. One son was a shepherd. And my other son was a Wise Man.
My shepherd son had practiced his lines over and over, but when the time came, he was nervous and said, "We found the babe wrapped in wrinkled clothes."
To which Mary replied, "That's not wrinkled clothes, that's dirty rotten clothes!"
Giggles from the audience, but the play went on. My Wise Man son, wearing his father's bath robe and paper crown knelt by the manger and said, "We are the three Wise Men and we are bringing gifts of gold, common sense and fur."
A minister looked out the window into his back yard to see his son and two friends about to bury a dead robin they found. They had put the robin into a small box and padded the inside with cotton.

It's In the Bible
One day, a little boy opened the big family Bible and was fingering through it. As he turned the page, out fell a leaf which had been pressed in it. He picked up the leaf and ran to his mother. "Mom," he said. "Look what I found. I think it's Adams underwear!"
King of Glory
Six year old Mike was listening to the Messiah one day with his mother. When it got to this part: "He is the King of glory," Mike asked, "Is Glory His wife?"
One Palm Sunday, little Joey had a sore throat and had to stay home from church with a sitter. When the rest of the family came home, they were carrying palm branches. Joey asked what they were for. His father told him that people held them over Jesus' head when he walked by.
"Wouldn't you know it!" said Joey. "The one Sunday I miss, Jesus shows up!"

"No, sir, we don't have to," Bobby replied. "My mom's a good cook."
Elijah and the Prophets of Baal
A Sunday School teacher told her class about the story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal. The prophets of Baal tried to get their god to send fire to ignite the offering they had put on their altar. Of course, their god couldn't do it. Then Elijah put his offering of a bull on an altar. But before he called on God to ignite it from heaven, he had the people pour water on the bull four times. The teacher asked the class if they knew why Elijah would do that.
A little girl waved her hand excitedly. "I know, I know," she said, "To make the gravy!"
A Sunday School teacher was telling the class about how Lot's wife looked back at the city while they were fleeing its destruction, even though God had forbidden her to. She then turned into a pillar of salt.
A little boy interrupted her and said, "My mommy looked back one time while she was driving the car and she turned into a street lamp."
The Good Samaritan
A Sunday School class was learning about the Good Samaritan. To make the story vivid to the children, teacher told the story in detail, describing how the Samaritan was beaten, robbed, then left for dead.

How Moses Crossed the Red Sea
A mother asked her nine-year-old son what he learned in Sunday School that day. He said the teacher told them how God sent Moses behind enemy lines to rescue the Israelites and lead them out of Egypt. When they got to the Red Sea, the army built a pontoon bridge and everyone walked across safely. Then they saw the Egyptians coming, so Moses radioed for reinforcements. Bombers came and blew up the bridge, so the people were saved.

"No," he replied, "but if I told it the way the teacher did, you’d never believe it."
