A pastor was giving the children's message during church. For
this part of the service, he would gather all the children
around him and give a brief lesson before dismissing them for
On this particular Sunday, he was using squirrels for an object
lesson on industry and preparation. He started out by saying,
"I'm going to describe something, and I want you to raise your
hand when you know what it is." The children nodded eagerly.
"This thing lives in trees (pause) and eats nuts (pause)..." No
hands went up. "And it is gray (pause) and has a long bushy tail
(pause)..." The children were looking at each other, but still no
hands raised. "And it jumps from branch to branch (pause) and
chatters and flips its tail when it's excited (pause)..."
Finally one little boy tentatively raised his hand. The pastor
breathed a sigh of relief and called on him. "Well...," said the
boy, "I KNOW the answer must be JESUS ... but it sounds
like a squirrel to me!"
