Page 6 June 6, 1998 ARKANSAS CATHOLg If you knew that Jesus would return tomorrow, what would you do the rest of today? I would first of all get baptized and repent of all my sins. Second, I would tell everyone that I have hurt, that I am sorry. I would also tell the world that Jesus would be coming tomorrow and to repent of all their sins. After everybody knew I would start praying and all my sins.

I would prepare for his arrival and when He came I would make Him feel wel- come. I would rejoice mid praise God all day long because He is taking me out of this miserable world. I would make sure I'm ready to go to my home on high. Andranique Ellis 8th grade If I knew that Jesus would return tomorrow I would probably spend the rest of today praying at home with my family. Maribel Lim 8th grade If Jesus were com- ing tomorrow I would confess my sins to Him, ask for forgiveness, and wait for him to come. I would have no worry because it says in Rev. 3:10-11; "Be- cause you have pa- . tiently obeyed me Jill Clark despite the persecu- 9thgrade don, therefore I will protect you from the time of great tribu- ladon and temptation, which will come upon the world to test everyone alive." r q,onses are from students at St. JoSh Junior High School in Pine Bluff.

This time, though, they both wanted the same thing. They decided to ask their parents at the dinner table. Katie was going to do the talking. "This meat loaf is really good, Mum," she said in her nicest voice. "Thank you, Katie," said Karen Courtney. "Mum and Dad, I have a ques- tion. Could we watch TV together tonight?" asked Katie. Mr. and Mrs. Courtney looked at each other. Then they both looked at Katie. "Of course," said her dad. "Why?" asked her mum. "Oh, Mum!" said Katie. "You're always so suspicious!" "If that's true," said Mrs. Courtney, "rm very sorry. Now please answer my question. Why do you want to watch television together tonight? You usually pre- fer to watch something else in another room." Bobby couldn't keep quiet any longer. "She wants to watch that talk show that comes on late at night!" "Which talk show?" asked Mr. Courtney. "The one where all the people et into fights!" I "Over my dead body!" said their grownups fight?" asked her mum. mum. "Dad likes boxing," said Bobby.

Over and over again, he told his followers to be kind to each other. He even said to be good to those who are mean to us. Of the Ten Command- ments, only the first three tell us how to respect God. The other seven tell us how to treat each other. When people on i < television say and do r terrible things, they cause a scandal. That means that other people are shocked by them. They should be ashamed to act that way. Jesus said, "There are going to be scandals. But look out if you're the one who causes a scandall" Doing bad things in front of others (especially children) might cause them to do bad things, too. Jesus said, *If you cause a young child to do something wrong. It'd be better to have a stone Ued to your neck and be thrown into the sea." In other words, it would be better to die than to lead children Into sin. Draw your favorite TV character in the TV screen! keep happening. SHOW!

Then, in front of all those people, he breaks up with her instead." "That's SO MEAN{" said Bobby. "Yes, it is," said his dad.
