“A nine-year-old boy named Joey went to his Sunday school class, and the teacher spoke about how God delivered the Hebrew people from the clutches of Pharaoh and the Egyptian army.
On the way home from church, Joey’s mother asked him what he had learned that morning. Joey answered, “Our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy lines on a rescue mission to lead Israel out of Egypt. When he got to the Red Sea, he had his engineers build a pontoon bridge, and all of the people walked across safely. Then he used his walkie-talkie to radio headquarters and call in an air strike when the Egyptians were closing in on them. They sent in bombers to blow up the bridge and destroy the enemy, and all of the Israelites were saved.”
“Now Joey,” his mom said, “is that really what the teacher told you this morning?”
Joey hesitated and said, “Well, not exactly, but if I told it the way the teacher did, you would never believe it!””
