It's a true story; only the names have been changed to protect the embarrassed.

Little Tommy attended first grade Sunday School faithfully. He loved his teacher, Mrs. Smith. Mrs. Smith told great Bible stories, and she would always end the story by saying, "And, boys and girls, the MORAL of the story is ..." Little Tommy enjoyed learning about the morals of each Bible story.

But when Tommy entered second grade, he moved up to another Sunday School class, taught by Mrs. Jones. She told Bible stories, too, but she never ended them by giving the moral of the story. After a few weeks Tommy's mom asked him how he liked his new Sunday School teacher. Tommy said, "Mrs. Jones is okay. The only problem is that she doesn't have any morals."

We've been studying the Parables and Miracles of Jesus for over a year now, and I'm glad tat the stories of Jesus do have morals, or applications.

(From a sermon by David Dykes, Mountin-Moving Faith, 8/20/2012)
