A Good Christion Lion

Northern Shoveler, San Antonio NM, February 10, 2011

A missionary was walking in Africa when he heard the ominous padding of a lion behind him. Cleveland Amory

A missionary was walking in Africa when he heard the ominous padding of a lion behind him. "Oh Lord," prayed the missionary, "grant in Thy goodness that the lion walking behind me is a good Christian lion."

And then, in the silence that followed, the missionary heard the lion praying too. "Oh Lord," he prayed, "we thank thee for the food which we are about to receive."
