10 Little Christians
10 little Christians standing in line,
1 disliked the preacher, then there were 9.
9 little Christians stayed up very late,
1 overslept Sunday, then there were 8.
8 little Christians on their way to Heaven,
1 took the lower road and then there were 7.
7 little Christians chirping like chicks,
1 disliked the music, then there were 6.
6 little Christians seemed very much alive,
but one lost his interest then there were 5.
5 little Christians pulling ofr Heaven's shore,
but one stopped to rest, then there were 4.
4 little Christians each busy as a bee,
1 got his feelings hurt and then there were 3.
3 little Christians knew not what to do,
1 joined the sporty crowd and then therewere 2.
2 earnest Christians, each won one more,
That doubled the number, then there were 4.
4 sincere Christians worked early and late,
Each won another and then there were 8.
8 splendid Christians if they doubled as before,
In just so many Sundays, we'd have 1,024.
In this little jingle, there is a lesson true,
you belong either to the building or to the wrecking crew.

Life After Death
"Do you believe in Life After Death?" A boss asked one of his employees. "Yes sir," the new employee replied. "Well then, that makes everything just fine." The boss went on. "After you left early yesterday to go to your grandmother's funeral, she stopped by to see you."
It was Palm Sunday and because of a sore throat, five-year-old Johnny stayed home from church with a sitter. When the family returned home, they were carrying several Palm Branches. The boy asked what they were for. "People held them over Jesus' head as He walked by." "Wouldn't you know it!" the boy fumed. "The one Sunday I don't go and He shows up!"
One Easter Sunday morning as the pastor was sharing the Children's Sermon, he reached into his bag of props and pulled out an egg. He pointed to the egg and asked the children, "What's in here?" "I know! I know!" a little boy exclaimed. "Pantyhose!"
First Time Ushers
A little boy in church for the first time watched as the ushers passed around the offering plates. When they came near his pew, the boy said loudly, "Don't pay for me daddy. I'm still under five."
