Religious Insights from the Perspective of Children

Moses and the Red Sea - Nine year old Joey was asked by his mother what he had learned in Sunday school. ‘Well, Mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. When he got to the Red Sea, he had his army build a pontoon bridge and all the people walked across safely. Then he radioed headquarters for reinforcements. They sent bombers to blow up the bridge and all the Israelites were saved.’ ‘Now, Joey, is that really what your teacher taught you?’ his Mother asked. ‘Well, no, Mom...But, if I told it the way the teacher did, you’d never believe it!’

Higher Power - A Sunday school teacher said to her children, ‘We have been learning how powerful kings and queens were in Bible times. But, there is a Higher Power. Can anybody tell me what it is?’ One child blurted out, ‘Aces!’

Time To Pray - A pastor asked a little boy if he said his prayers every night. ‘Yes, sir,’ the boy replied. ‘And, do you always say them in the morning, too?’ the pastor asked. ‘No sir,’ the boy replied. ‘I’m not scared in the daytime.’

The Lord Is My Shepherd - A Sunday school teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible - Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the chapter. Little Rick was excited about the task but he just couldn’t remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past the first line. On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Ricky was so nervous. When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, ‘The Lord is my shepherd, and that’s all I need to know.’
