A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her young students.
After explaining the commandment to “honor thy father and thy mother,” she asked,
“Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?”
Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, “Thou shall not kill.”
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 wise little girl replied, “Because people are sleeping.”
The Sunday school teacher was teaching her pupils how God created everything, including human beings.
Billy, a child in the kindergarten class, seemed especially intent when the teacher told him how Eve was created out of one of Adam’s ribs.
Later in the week his mother noticed him lying as though he were ill, and said. “Billy what is the matter?”
He answered, “I have a pain in my side. I think I’m going to have a wife.”
A Sunday school teacher was carefully telling the story of Elijah the Prophet and the false prophets of Baal in her class.
She explained how Elijah built the altar, put wood upon it, cut the steer in pieces and laid it upon the altar.
And then Elijah commanded the people of God to fill four barrels of water and pour it over the altar. He had them do this four times.
“Now, said the teacher, “can anyone in the class tell me why the Lord would have Elijah pour water over the steer on the altar?”
A little girl in the back of the room raised her hand with great enthusiasm. “To make the gravy.”
