These Five Fingers

Found this the other day in a file I keep for illustrations and stories for sermons.  I guess I haven't yet found the right sermon for this story.  It cracks me up, it is so Peanuts.

Lucy comes into the living room to find Linus in control of the TV.  She demands he change the channel.  "What makes you think you can walk right in here and take over?" asks Linus.

"These five fingers," says Lucy.  "Individually they're nothing but when I curl them together like this into a single unit, they form a weapon that is terrible to behold."

"Which channel do you want?" asks Linus.

Turning away, he looks at his fingers and says, "Why can't you guys get organized like that?"
