SURE WAYS TO AVOID BEING A SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER
By Kathy Granger
One day you may be approached by the pastor or Sunday School superintendent and asked to teach a Sunday School class. To avoid such responsibility and work in God’s kingdom, memorize this handy list of excuses to be ready at any time.
“I think Sunday School is for sissies.”
“Would I have to bathe?”
“Sure, and don’t worry about discipline in my classroom. I believe in the old eye-for-an-eye bit. You know, insult for insult, shove for shove, punch for punch, black eye for black eye, tooth for tooth, and knockout for knockout.”
“Oh, I just couldn’t. My Psychiatrist told me that I have a sensitive personality and delicate nature, and that anything can set me off.”
“Why yes, I just love teaching third graders! They share a lot of family problems when I ask for prayer requests, and I faithfully remember them to mention them in my ladies’ prayer group.”
“No problem; I’m a pro! My last class learned so much about our church that none of them even need to come anymore.”
“Can each of my personalities take turns teaching the class each week?”
“I can tell if people in my class are sinners just by LOOKING at them.”
