A boy named ‘Ikpokwu’ sat down for his Bible Knowledge (BK) examination. When the question paper was placed before his desk and he was instructed to start. He reluctantly read the questions.
1. Write a story of Abraham in not more than 500 words. How would you rate his faith?
2. Explain how God demonstrated his power through Moses. How would you rate Moses stewardship?
3. Give a brief story about Jesus. How would you rate his death on the cross?
Ikpokwu who had not been regular attending ‘Bk classes’ and ‘Sunday school’ didn’t know what to write. In fact, he had lost his Bible in a bet, when he blindly argued that ‘Christmas’ came before ‘new year’ celebration. He thought for a while then wrote this on the answer sheet:
Who am I, an ordinary student, to write about any of these great men of God? Instead, I will write about ‘Adam’. Adam was the man who brought mankind untold hardship. For example ‘you’ as BK teacher have to come to work every day. While we ‘students’ have to ‘study’ and write examinations such as Bible Knowledge. Therefore I shall rate ‘Adam’ Zero!
I hope that I pass this exam.
When the result of the examination came. His teacher wrote back.
Who am I, an ordinary teacher, to comment on the first man that God created?
Anyway, this is the statement of your result. As for the first man ‘Adam’ you wrote about. I am very grateful to him for giving me the privilege to teach ‘BK”. So I am giving him an ‘A’. But as for you ‘Ikpokwu’ you have scored an ‘F’.
I hope that you’ll repeat your class.
