This week's lesson: I John 3:11-24

"I love you," she said, "and I do want to spend the rest of my life with you . . . "

"But?"

She sighed. "But I'm wondering if there's some way we could ditch your kids?"

"My children?"

"Yes, your children," she said. "As much as I love you, I have to admit you have the most annoying children I've ever met. They're rude. They're crude. And they fight all the time."

"Yes, that's true."

"So why don't we get rid of them . . . and then we could spend all of our time with each other? Just you and me. One-on-one. Nobody else to make things difficult."

"It doesn't work that way," said Jesus. "No, it's a package deal: if you get me, then you get my children too. And if you love me. . . ."
