I teach bible to first and second graders on Wednesday nights. The kids are 6-8 years old. Wed. night I read them the story of the Good Samaritan from Luke 10:30-35. I read with great fervor and passion.
"Jesus replied and said, 'A man was going down toe road from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went away leaving him half dead. And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side of the road. But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him. On the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, 'Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return I will repay you.' "
So at the end of the story, I looked around and asked, "Boys and girls, what do you think is the moral of the story?"
Boy: "Never go walking alone and always bring a BB gun."
