One Sunday after church a pastor noticed that one of the men was wearing a lapel pin that had a bulldog on it. He was wearing it because he worked for Mack Truck and the bulldog is their logo, but the pastor didn’t know that.

So when he asked, "Frank, why are you wearing a pin of a bulldog?"

Frank got a twinkle in his eye and said, "Well, that bulldog symbolizes the tenacity with which I hold onto Jesus Christ."

His pastor answered, "Well, Frank, it’s a great symbol, but it’s lousy theology."

Frank said, "What do you mean?"

The pastor said, "It should never stand for the tenacity with which you hold onto Jesus Christ. It should stand for the tenacity with which Jesus Christ holds onto you."

Jesus said, “I will never, ever, ever leave you or forsake you.”
