Uncategorized PARABLE OF A BOY AND HIS RED WAGON It was Christmas morningand church members were gatheringfor a pre-worship breakfastwhen one of the ladiescame screaming into their midst.”Baby Jesus is gone. Gone!”she yelled.“Some thief stole him from our nativityon the front lawn. How could they be so cruel?””Baby Jesus was valuable, too,one of a kind. What ever will we do?”someone else yelled.The more people talked the angrier they got.They were in the process of forming a search partywhen Pastor Joe entered ,dragging a small, bewildered boy.”This is the culprit,” Pstor Joe said.”I caught him red-handed out on the sidewalk.He confessed to taking baby Jesus.What should we do with him?””Call the police,” someone said.”Call his parents and ask them whythey’re raising a thief,” another said.”Ask the kid why he did it,” someone else said.”Good idea,” Pastor Joe said.”Son, why did you steal Baby Jesus?”The boy looked at all the angry peopleand then looked up at Pastor Joe,”I didn’t steal him,” the boy said.“You see, I been praying a long time.I been asking Jesus if he could helpme get a red Radio Flyer wagonfor Christmas I wold take him a ride in it.Well, sir, this morning I gotthe Rdio Flyer wagon for Christmas.So, I came down to the churchand put baby Jesus in the wagonto give him a ride.I wanted to keep my promise.I planned on putting him backin the manger when we were done.”There was a long silence in the church.
