Children say the funniest things …. about faith

Posted by Paddy MacLachlan

Three-year-old Reese :
‘Our Father, Who does art in heaven,
Harold is His name.

After the christening of his baby brother in church,
Jason sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car.
His father asked him what was wrong. He replied:
‘that preacher said he wanted us brought up in a Christian home,
but I want to stay with you.’

One particular four-year-old prayed,
‘and forgive us our trash baskets
as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets.’

A teacher asked her children: ‘and why is it important to be quiet in church?’
One bright little girl replied, ‘because people are sleeping.’

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin 5, and Ryan 3.
The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake.
Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson.
‘If Jesus were sitting here, He would say,
‘Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.’
Kevin turned to his younger brother and said,
‘ Ryan, you be Jesus !’

A woman invited some people to dinner.
At the table, she turned to her six-year-old daughter and said,
‘would you like to say the blessing?’
‘I wouldn’t know what to say,’ the girl replied.
‘Just say what you hear mummy say to God,’ her mother answered.
The daughter bowed her head and said,
‘Oh God, why did I invite this lot?’
