How to go to Heaven - Childrens' Answer

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,



played with them and loved them



 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.'
