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

I asked them, "If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage 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 yard, and kept everything neat and tidy, would that get me into Heaven?"

Again, the answer was, "No!"

By now I was starting to smile. Hey, this was fun! They really had picked up on my weekly Sunday morning teachings.

"Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave candy to all the children, and loved my husband, would that get me into Heaven?" I asked them again.

Again, they all answered, "No!"

I was just bursting with pride.

Well, I continued with a bright smile, "Then how can I get into Heaven?"

A five-year-old boy jumped out of his seated and shouted out, "You gotta be dead."
