Always listen to your ass !



The story of Balaam’s ass was our chat for the children today.

I’m not sure they knew what an ass was until

she finally said donkey after the reading of the scripture.



Enemies of the Israelites paid money to a sorcerer named Balaam so that he would call a curse on God’s people.  The Lord spoke to Balaam but Balaam did not listen very well.



As Balaam and his donkey travelled along a road,

an angel of the Lord blocked the path of the donkey.


When Balaam beat the donkey, God miraculously caused the donkey to talk to her owner.




Finally, Balaam saw the angel and realized what had happened.


He ended up blessing the Israelites instead of cursing them.
