10 Little Christians

Read this in the book I just finished, "Living Free in Christ" by Neil Anderson and I really liked it. Wanted to share it here.

10 Little Christians

10 little Christians came to church all the time; one fell out with the preacher, then there were nine.

9 little Christians stayed up late; one overslept on Sunday; then there were eight.

8 little Christians on their way to heaven; one took the low road; then there were seven.

7 little Christians, chirping like chicks; one didn't like the singing, then there were six.

6 little Christians seemed very much alive; one took a vacation, then there were five.

5 little Christians pulling for heaven's shore; one stopped to rest awhile, then there were four.

4 little Christians each busy as a bee; one got his feelings hurt, then there were three.

3 little Christians couldn't decide what to do; one couldn't have his way, then there were two.

2 little Christians each won one more; now don't you see, two and two make four.

4 little Christians worked early and late, each brought one, now there were eight.

8 little Christians, if they double as before... in just seven Sundays we'd have one thousand twenty-four.

In this little jingle there is a lesson true - you belong either to the building or to the wrecking crew!

A parable in verse-- fifties style. I love it!
