    The Good Samaritan



    A man is in bed with his wife when there is a knock on the door.

    He rolls over and looks at his clock, and it's half past three in the morning. "I'm not getting out of bed at this time," he thinks, and rolls over. Then, a louder knock follows.

    "Aren't you going to answer that?" says his wife.

    So he drags himself out of bed and goes downstairs. He opens the door and there is man standing at the door. It didn't take the homeowner long to realize the man was drunk. "Hi there," slurs the stranger, "Can you
    give me a push?"

    "No, get lost. It's half past three. I was in bed," says the man
    and slams the door. He goes back up to bed and tells his wife what happened and she says, "Dave, that wasn't very nice of you. Remember that night we broke down in the pouring rain on the way to pick the kids up from the baby sitter and you had to knock on that man's house to get us started again? What would have happened if he'd told us to get lost?"

    "But the guy was drunk," says the husband.

    "It doesn't matter," says the wife. "He needs our help and it would be the right thing to help him."

    So the husband gets out of bed again, gets dressed, and goes downstairs.
    He opens the door, and not being able to see the stranger anywhere he shouts, "Hey, do you still want a push?"

    And he hears a voice cry out, "Yeah, please,"

    So, still being unable to see the stranger he shouts, "Where are you?"

    The drunk replies, "Over here, on the swing."

    KIDS IN CHURCH


    A Sunday school teacher asked her class, "What was Jesus' mother's name?"
    One child answered, "Mary."
    The teacher then asked, "Who knows what Jesus' father's name was?"
    A little kid said, "Verge."
    Confused, the teacher asked, "Where did you get that?"
    The kid said, "Well, you know they are always talking about Verge n' Mary
    .''***********

    3-year-old, Reese:
    "Our Father, Who does art in heaven, Harold is His name. Amen."
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    A little boy was overheard praying:
    "Lord, if you can't make me a better boy, don't worry about it.
    I'm having a real good time like I am."

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    A Sunday school class was studying the Ten Commandments.
    They were ready to discuss the last one.
    The teacher asked if anyone could tell her what it was.
    Susie raised her hand, stood tall, and quoted,
    "Thou shall not take the covers off the neighbor's wife."
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    After the christening of his baby brother in church,
    Jason sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car.
    His father asked him three times what was wrong.
    Finally, the boy replied, "That preacher said he wanted us brought up in a Christian home, and I wanted to stay with you guys."
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I had been teaching my three-year old daughter, Caitlin, the Lord's Prayer for several evenings at bedtime, she would repeat after me the lines from the prayer. Finally, she decided to go solo. I listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word right up to the end of the prayer: "Lead us not into temptation," she prayed, "but deliver us some E-mail.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    One particular four-year-old prayed,
    "And forgive us our trash baskets as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets."

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    A Sunday school teacher asked her children, as they were on the way to church service,
    "And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?"
    One bright little girl replied, "Because people are sleeping."

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Six-year-old Angie and her four-year-old brother Joel were sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang, and talked out loud.
    Finally, his big sister had had enough.
    "You're not supposed to talk out loud in church." "Why? Who's going to stop me?" Joel asked.
    Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, "See those two men standing by the door?
    They're hushers."

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5 and Ryan 3.
    The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson. "If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, 'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.'"
    Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, "Ryan, you be Jesus!"
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    A father was at the beach with his children when the four-year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand.
    "Daddy, what happened to him?" the son asked.
    "He died and went to Heaven," the Dad replied.
    The boy thought a moment and then said,
    "Did God throw him back down?"

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said, "Would you like to say the blessing?"
    "I wouldn't know what to say," the girl replied.
    "Just say what you hear Mommy say," the wife answered.
    The daughter bowed her head and said, "Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?"

    I actually saw this today:
    It was a poster advertising service. In big letters, it said "on sight child care!". These posters are up all over the place. Shouldn't it be "On-site"?
    Ah well... I know why I don't go to church.

    To set us at ease, given the problems over there, He said...

    "The reason you don't see Walmart over there is because there is a "Target" at every corner.

    Here's one especially for Angie: A while ago, there were two headlines on a news site (I think it was Yahoo) right next to each other, saying

    Ratzinger neuer Papst
    Teufel tritt zurück

    (maybe not these exact words, but something very similar)

    English translation:
    Ratzinger new Pope
    Devil resigns

    😉

    While "Teufel" means "devil", it's also the name of a German politician (the devil sits in the Christian Democratic Union 😉 ).
