After listening to Chuck Swindoll on the radio, eight-year-old Debbie asked six-year-old David, “Do you know about Jesus?”

Expecting a new slant on the old story, David replied, “No.”

Sister continued, “Sit still because this is really scary.” After explaining the gospel as only an eight-year-old could, she popped the question.

“Now, David, when you die, do you want to go to heaven to be with Jesus, God, your Mommy and Daddy, and big sister, or do you want to go to the lake of fire to be with the Devil and bank robbers?”

David thought a moment, then replied, “I want to stay right here.”
