What if there is no “next time”?

A true story.  One day a woman was attending church with her neighbors.  The families went forward to Communion while the younger children waited in the pews.  The woman, however, did not get up to go to the communion rail.

The six-year old boy seated beside her asked her why she was not taking Communion.  She said ” I don’t feel like it today — I’ll do it next time”.  To which the little boy replied “What if there is no next time?”  The woman immediately got up to partake in Communion.
