All stories teach us something,
and promise us something,
whether they're true or invented,
legend or fact.

Jonah and the Whale

A little girl was noticed by her pastor, as she held her storybook, entitled "Jonah and the Whale." The pastor thought he would see if the little girl believed the story about Jonah. So, after saying Hi to the girl he asked her to tell him about the book she was holding. The girl said the book was about Jonah, and how he was swallowed by a whale. The pastor asked: "Do you believe that really happened?"

The little girl replied, "yes, I believe the story of Jonah is true." You mean you really believe that a man can be swallowed up by a big whale, stay inside him all that time, and come out of there still alive and okay? She said, "Absolutely -- this story is in the Bible and we studied it in Sunday school today!"

Then the pastor asked, "How can you prove that the story about Jonah is true?" She thought for a moment, and then said, "When I get to Heaven I'll ask Jonah."

The pastor then asked, "What if Jonah's NOT in Heaven?" She put her hands on her little waist, and sternly said: "Then YOU can ask him!"
