Martin arrived late for Sunday school. Miss Walter, his teacher, knew that Martin was usually very punctual so she asked him if anything was wrong.
Martin replied no, that he had been going fishing but his dad told him that he needed to go to church.
Miss Walter was very impressed and asked the lad if his dad had explained to him why it was more important to go to church than to go fishing?
Martin replied, “Yes he did. Dad said he didn’t have enough bait for both of us.”

Last one (for now) from Elizabeth.
One day a Pastor and a Brother took a visitor fishing by boat. Once in the middle of the lake, the Pastor said, “I seem to have forgotten my fishing rod; I’ll be right back,” and to the visitor’s amazement, he stepped out of the boat and walked on top of the water towards the shore.
When the Pastor returned the Brother said, “I need to use the toilet; I’ll be right back!” Again, the visitor watched in amazement.
Once the Brother returned, not wanting to be outdone, the visitor said “I need to use the toilet, too.” As soon as he stepped out of the boat, he sank.
The Pastor nudged the Brother and said, “We should have told him where the rocks were.”
