A Sunday School teacher in Knysna was testing her young class to see if they understood the concept of getting into heaven. She asked them, “If I sold my house, my car, had a big jumble sale and gave all my money to the church, would that get me Into heaven?”
“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 she smiling with pride at their understanding but decided to make the questions a bit harder..
“Well, then, if I was kind to dogs and elephants, gave sweeties to all of you, and loved my husband with all my heart, would that get me into heaven?”
“NO!” She was bursting with pride for their correct answers!
“Then how can I get into heaven?” she asked.
A six-year-old boy shouted, “You have to be dead!”
