Sunday School

A Sunday School teacher read a passage from the Old Testament book of
Jonah to her class:

"And the Lord appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah; and Jonah
was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. Then Jonah
prayed to the Lord his God from the belly of the fish, saying 'I
called to the Lord in my hour of my distress and He answered me.'
...and the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the
dry land." (Jonah 1:17)

When she had finished reading, the teacher said, "Now, children, you
have heard the Bible story of Jonah and the whale. What does this
story teach us?"

Ten-year-old Mark shouted out, "You can't keep a good man down!"
