Three brothers, aged 8, 9, and 11, were going get baptized on the same Sunday to have their sins washed away. The 9-year-old was particularly pensive that day, and when his mother asked him what he was thinking about, he said:
“Mom, I want to go first.”
“Why?” she asked.
“Because, I don’t want to be baptized in water that has all of my brother’s sins floating around in it.”
