Why Take Notes at Meetings
A little girl and her family were on their way to the Kingdom Hall.
Half-way into the trip, the little girl shouted: "STOP! We have to go
back home!" The father asked: "Why? What's wrong, honey?"
"Dad, we HAVE to go home now. We just HAVE to!"
Seeing the concern in her eyes, and a little tear forming in the
corner, he said: "Okay, we will, we will, but can you
please tell me why?"
With a brief sigh of relief, she exclaimed, "Because I forgot my notebook."
The father and mother smiled to each other. "Oh, I see. Well, that's
okay. You can ...."
"No, it's NOT, Daddy!" the little girl interrupted, choking back her
tears that were beginning to well up in her eyes.
"Don't you remember, Daddy? The story of the people of Noah's day?
Remember, they took no notes and the flood came
and swept them all away!"
