Day Brightener – How to get to Heaven from Ireland

XX Sunday Morning-p7 dkI was testing children in my Dublin 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 garden, and kept everything tidy, would that get me into heaven?

‘Again, the answer was ‘NO!

”If I gave sweets to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into heaven?’

Again, they all answered ‘NO!

I was just bursting with pride for them. I continued, ‘Then how can I get into heaven?’

A little boy shouted out: ‘YUV GOTTA BE FOOKN’ DEAD.’

It’s a curious race, the Irish.

Brings a tear to the eye, doesn’t it?
