HOW ARE YOU BUILDING YOUR HOUSE?

[Of Special Interest to Children]

Jim and Judy were twins. In school their teacher often told stories to their class. One day she told them the story of "The Three Little Pigs." She explained that one little pig built his house of straw, and when the little pig would not let him in, the wolf easily blew down the house. The second little pig did not build his house of very sturdy materials either; so it was blown down, too. But the third little pig built his house of good strong bricks, for he wanted his house to last. When the wolf tried to get in, the little pigs house did stand, even when the wolf tried very hard to blow it down. Finally the wolf had to give up and go away.

When the children told their mother about this story, she read them a Bible verse from Proverbs (20:11): "Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right." She asked them if they remembered the story Christ Jesus told of some men who built their houses of different materials, too.
