THE PASTOR'S KITTEN
A pastor had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was
afraid to come down. The pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc. The kitty
would not come down.
The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor
decided that if he tied a rope to his car and drove away so that the tree
bent down, he could then reach up and get the kitten. He did all this,
checking his progress in the car frequently, then figured if he went just a
little bit further, the tree would be bent sufficiently for him to reach the
But as he moved a little further forward... the rope broke. The tree went
"boing!" and the kitten instantly sailed through the air - out of sight. The
pastor felt terrible. He walked all over the neighborhood asking people if
they'd seen a little kitten. Nobody had seen a stray kitten.
So, he prayed,
"Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping," and went on about his
A few days later, the pastor stopped to check on one of his flock.
When He knocked on the door, a woman answered. As he stepped into the door,
he saw a little girl playing with a kitten.
"Mrs. Brown, I thought you
didn't like cats? How did you end up having this one?"
"Well, Pastor, she'd been wanting a cat for quite a while, and I was at the
end of my rope with her and this cat business. I told her that she could
have a cat when God gave her a cat, and you wouldn't believe it, and I
wouldn't have either, but just the other day, this kitten came flying down
out of the sky and landed right in her lap!! Now she has a kitten."
