Getting to Heaven from Ireland...
A true story from an Irish Sunday School teacher
I was testing the 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 of 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 FOOKIN' DEAD!"
It's a curious race, the Irish. Brings a tear to the eye, doesn't it?
Yes, my ancestors were Irish. :)
