Time for a smile.

HOW TO GET TO HEAVEN
I was testing the children in my Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven. I asked them, “If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage 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 yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would that get me into heaven?”

Again, the answer was, “NO!”

By now I was starting to smile. Hey, this was fun! “Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave candy
to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into Heaven?” I asked them again.

Again, they all answered, ‘NO!’

I was just bursting with pride for them. “Well,” I continued, “then how can I get into heaven?”

A five-year-old boy shouted out, “YOU GOTTA BE DEAD!!!”

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
Colossians 3:1-4
