The Mule

A little Sunday school boy, on his first trip to the country, made a significant comment after he had viewed with childish curiosity his grandfather's large white mule. "Mamma," he said, "grandpa's mule must be a very good Christian." The mother was surprised at the association of Christianity with an animal that generally causes the loss of it, so she asked little Jake the reason for his conclusion. His ready answer was: "Because grandpa's mule has such a long face."
