I was testing children in my Glasgow Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting into heaven.

I asked them,
"If I sold my house and my
car, had a big jumble 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!'

By now I was starting to smile.

"Well, then, if I was kind to animals and
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 six year old boy shouted,



"Yuv got tae be fukin' dead"
Kinda brings a wee tear tae yir eye...
