JONAH AND THE WHALE
A little girl was reading on an airplane when the man beside her noticed her storybook, entitled "Jonah and the Whale."
The man thought he would see if the little girl believed the story about Jonah. So, after saying Hi to the girl he asked her to tell him about the book she was holding. The girl said the book was about Jonah, and how he was swallowed by
The man asked: "Do you believe that really happened?"
The little girl replied, "Yes, I believe the story of Jonah is true."
You mean you really believe that a man can be swallowed up by a big whale, stay inside him all that time, and come out of there still alive and okay?
She said, "Absolutely -- this story is in the Bible and we studied it in Sunday school today!"
Then the man asked, "How can you prove that the story about Jonah is true?"
She thought for a moment, and then said, "When I get to Heaven I'll ask Jonah."
The man then asked, "What if Jonah's NOT in Heaven?" She put her hands on her little waist, and sternly said: "Then I
guess YOU can ask him!"
To the world, you may
just be somebody...but to somebody, you may be the world.
