The Raptured Mouse
(A fun little story about the luckiest mouse on the planet).
Once upon a time there was a brilliant mouse who desired nothing more in life than to be raptured up with the Bride of Christ at the end of time. He studied his Bible and he studied his Bible day and night to learn how to pull off this great task. He figured out that if he would simply pack his bags and lay his entire life down to serve the Lord that he would be ready for take off when the Lord came to rescue His Bride. He also felt that if he surrendered every single thing in his life and spent all his spare time evangelizing that he would make the cut!
The little mouse worked and he worked and he went to every little mouse dwelling to make sure that they too had surrendered their lives to the Groom. He told them of the great miracles of the Lord and all the parables too. He carried pictures and charts and all sorts of mouse props to get his important stories across. He even carried anointing oil and anointed all the little mice from town to town.
This little fella took his job ever so seriously and he wanted to make the cut when the roll was called up yonder!
Then one day the mouse felt the strangest sensation upon his body. It was almost like gentle electricity that stood his mousey hair on ends. He felt as though his body became lighter and lighter. Next the room began to spin. Then in the flash of an instant the little mouse began to ascend up towards the heavenlies. He was the luckiest mouse on the planet! He worked so hard and he labored til he couldn’t labor any more. He gave his entire heart for the cause! He won the grand prize at the end of the journey too.
So what is the moral of this little mouse tale you might ask? The moral of the story is to be as busy as a bee working for the great harvest OR be as busy as this mouse! The other moral of the story is to be sure to use your time wisely and love the Lord your God with a fully surrendered life.
