How do you get to heaven?

Someone emailed this to me and I thought I would share:

I was testing the children

In my Sunday school class

To see if they understood the concept
Of getting to heaven.

I asked them, 'If I sold my house and my car,

Had a big garage sale

And gave all my money

To the church,

Would that get me into Heaven?'

'NO!' the children answered.

'If I cleaned the church every day,

Mowed the yard,

And kept everything neat and tidy,
Would that get me into Heaven?'

Again, the answer was, 'NO!'

By now I was starting to smile.

Hey, this was fun!

'Well, then, if I was kind to animals

And gave candy

To all the children,

And loved my husband,

Would that get me into Heaven?'

I asked them again.
Again, they all answered, 'NO!'

I was just bursting with pride for them.
'Well,' I continued, 'then how can I get into Heaven?'

A five-year-old boy shouted out,
