Like A Pumpkin

Great object lesson for kids!!!
A lady had recently been baptized.

One of her co-workers asked her what it was like to be a Christian. She was caught off guard and didn't know how to answer; but when she looked up, saw a jack-o-lantern on the desk and answered: "It's like being a pumpkin."

The co-worker asked her to explain that one.

"Well, God picks you from the patch and brings you in and washes off all the dirt on the outside that you got from being around all the other pumpkins. Then he cuts off the top and takes all the yucky stuff out from inside. He removes all those seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.

Then he carves you a new smiling face and puts his light inside you to shine for all to see. It is our choice to either stay outside and rot on the vine or come inside and be made something new and bright."

I'll never look at a pumpkin the same way again !!
