Childlike Faith

A group of nine-year-olds was asked their opinion on the subject of death.  Jim said, “When you die, they bury you in the ground and your soul goes to heaven, but your body can’t go to heaven because it’s too crowded up there already.”  Judy answered, “Only the good people go to heaven.  The other people go to where it’s hot all the time like Florida.”  John thoughtfully replied, “Maybe I’ll die someday, but I hope I don’t die on my birthday because it’s no fun to celebrate your birthday if you’re dead.”  Marsha added, “When you die, you don’t have to do your homework in heaven, unless your teacher is there, too.”

We should be so innocent….”Unless you turn to God from your sins and become as little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven.” (Matthew 18:3)
