Sunday School Stories
A Sunday school teacher was telling her class the story of the
Good Samaritan, in which a man was beaten, robbed and left for dead. She
described the situation in vivid detail so her students would catch the
drama. Then, she asked the class, "If you saw a person lying on the
roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?" A thoughtful
little girl broke the hushed silence, "I think I'd throw up."
STORY OF ELIJAH
The Sunday school teacher was carefully explaining the story of
Elijah the Prophet and the false prophets of Baal. She explained
how Elijah built the altar, put wood upon it, cut the steer in pieces,
and laid them 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 started waving her hand,
"I know, I know," she said, "to make the gravy!"
The Sunday School teacher was describing how Lot's wife looked
back and turned into a pillar of salt, when little Johnny interrupted,
"MyMummy looked back once, while she was DRIVING," he announced
triumphantly, "and she turned into a telephone pole!"
DID NOAH FISH?
A Sunday school teacher asked, "Johnny, do you think
Noah did a lot of fishing when he was on the Ark?"
"No! ," replied Johnny. "How could he, with just two worms."
A Sunday school teacher said to her children, "We have been
learning how powerful kings and queens were in Bible times. But,
there is a higher power, Can anybody tell me what it is?"
One child blurted out, "Aces!"
MOSES SAVED THE DAY
Nine year old Joey was asked by his mother
what he had learned in
Sunday school. "Well, Mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses
behind enemy lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of Egypt.
When he got to the Red Sea, he had his engineers build a pontoon bridge
and all the people walked across safely. Then, he used his walkie-talkie to
radio headquarters for an air strike. They sent bombers to blow up the
bridge and all the Israelites were saved."
"Now, Joey, is that really what your teacher taught you?" mother asked.
"Well, no, Mom. But, if I told it the way the teacher did, you'd never
THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD
A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize
one of the most quoted passages in the Bible; Psalm 23. She gave the
youngsters a month to learn the verse. Little Bobby was excited about
the task, but, he just couldn't remember the Psalm.
After much practice, he could barely get past the first line.
On the day that the kids were scheduled
to recite Psalm 23 in front of the
congregation, Bobby was so nervous. When it was his turn, he stepped
up to the microphone and said proudly, "The Lord is my shepherd and
that's all I need to know ."
AFRAID OF THE DARK
A little boy was afraid of the dark. One
night his mother told him to go out
to the back porch and bring her the broom.
The little boy turned to his mother and said, "Mama, I don't want to go
out there. It's dark."
The mother smiled reassuringly at her son. "You don't have to be afraid of
the dark," she explained. "Jesus is out there. He'll look after you and
The little boy looked at his mother real hard and asked, "Are you sure
he's out there?"
"Yes, I'm sure. He is everywhere, and he is always ready to help you when
you need him," she said.
The little boy thought about that for a minute and then went to the back
door and cracked it a little. Peering out into the darkness, he called,
"Jesus? If you're out there, would you please hand me the broom?"
