Wet Pants

school boyWET PANTS

Come with me to a third grade classroom…..

There is a nine-year-old kid sitting at his desk and
all of a sudden, there is a puddle between his feet
and the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his
heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly
imagine how this has happened. It’s never happened
before, and he knows that when the boys find out
he will never hear the end of it. When the girls find
out, they’ll never r speak to him again as long as he

The boy believes his heart is going to stop; he puts
his head down and prays this prayer, “Dear God, this
is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes
from now I’m dead meat.”

He looks up from his prayer and here comes the
teacher with a look in her eyes that says he has
been discovered.
As the teacher is walking toward him, a classmate
named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled
with water. Susie trips in front of the teacher
and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the boy’s lap.
The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is
saying to himself, “Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!”

Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of
ridicule, the boy is the object of sympathy. The
teacher rushes him downstairs and gives him gym
shorts to put on while his pants dry out. All the
other children are on their hands and knees cleaning
up around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful. But
as life would have it, the ridicule that should have
been his has been transferred to someone else – Susie.

She tries to help, but they tell her to get out.
You’ve done enough, you klutz!”

Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting
for the bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers,&
“You did that on purpose, didn’t you?”
Susie whispers back, “I wet my pants once too.”

May God help us see the opportunities that are
always around us to do good.

Remember…..Just going to church doesn’t make you a
Christian any more than standing in your garage makes
you a car. I only hope that in the coming years there
will be
many people with fish bowls around me!!!

This was emailed to me from a good friend. Thanks Scott for the reminder.
