Here is a cute story about why being a Christian is like being a Jack O Lantern. Share it with your children while you are carving a pumpkin for your own Jack O Lantern. Little children will be especially excited to share this with their friends. See the bottom of the post for a shareable social media graphic.
A Christian Is Like a Jack O Lantern
A woman was asked by a coworker,
What is it like to be a Christian?
The coworker replied,
It is like being a Jack O Lantern.
God picks you from the patch, brings you in,
and washes all the dirt off of you.
Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.
He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed.
Then He carves you a new smiling face
and puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.
