The year was 1946. I was five and had been in Sunday School since I was three. We had some wonderful Sunday School teachers and I loved hearing the Bible stories. But this particular Sunday, I must have been day dreaming or coloring my picture and not listening very well.
When we got home, my Dad in dinner conversation ask me what my Sunday School teacher taught me. Drawing a blank....a quick witted 5 year old blurted out "MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB". My Dad was a loving and patient man, but he had no patience for lying!!! None!!! So I still remember the sting on my little legs as I got my first spanking. Had I been a little quicker with my wit, I would have said Jesus had a little lamb!! :)
But I needed to learned two valuable lessons that day.
Listen to your Sunday School Teacher
If you mess up and don't listen ~~DON'T LIE!
Who ever said childhood was easy, HaHa!!
