GRIN AND SHARE IT: “Squirrels”


There were three country churches in a small Texas town: the

Presbyterian church, the Methodist church and the Baptist

church. Each church was overrun with pesky squirrels.


One day, the Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide

what to do about the squirrels. After much prayer and

consideration they determined that the squirrels were

predestined to be there and they shouldn’t interfere with God’s divine will.


The Methodist group got together and decided that they were

not in a position to harm any of God’s creations. So, they

humanely trapped the squirrels and set them free a few miles

outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back.


It was only the Baptists who were able to come up with

the best and most effective solution.

They baptized the squirrels and registered them as members

of the church. Now they only see them on Christmas and Easter.
