A Sunday School Teacher Thinks Her Class Understands The Concept Until A Small Voice Yells From The Back


The life of a teacher is one that has many rewards. Some of the rewards are easy to see, such as having the summers off or perhaps the simple reward of being able to shape the mind of today’s youth. That being said, there are going to be times when you seem to be hitting on all cylinders but it other times, you fall short of the mark. In the following joke, a Sunday school teachers felt pretty good about the way that she was teaching her children until a voice in the back changed her perspective.

A teacher was testing the children in her Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven.

She 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 grass, and kept everything neat and tidy, would that get me into Heaven”?

Again, the answer was, “NO”! By now the teacher was starting to smile.

“Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave sweets to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into Heaven”?” she asked them again.

Again, they all answered, “NO”! The teacher was just bursting with pride for them. Well, she continued, “then how can I get into Heaven”?

Six year-old Billy shouted out, “YOU GOTTA BE DEAD”!
