1 Corinthians 2:16
I recently received an email with an anonymous essay called EXPLANATION OF GOD BY A SIX YEAR OLD. It read, in part, “One of God’s main jobs is making people…to replace the ones that die… He doesn’t make grownups, just babies…they are smaller and easier to make. He doesn’t have to take up His valuable time teaching them to talk and walk; He can just leave that to mothers and fathers. God’s second most important job is listening to prayers. God doesn’t have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this. God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere which keeps Him pretty busy. So you shouldn’t go wasting His time by going over your mom and dad’s head asking for something they said you couldn’t have.
“Jesus is God’s Son. He used to do all the hard work, like walking on water and performing miracles and trying to teach the people who didn’t want to learn about God. They finally got tired of Him preaching to them and they crucified him. But He was good and kind, like his Father, and He told His Father that they didn’t know what they were doing and to forgive them and God said O.K. His dad (God) appreciated everything that He had done and all His hard work on earth so He told him He didn’t have to go out on the road anymore. He could stay in heaven. So He did. And now He helps his Dad out by listening to prayers and seeing things which are important for God to take care of and which ones He can take care of Himself without having to bother God. Like a secretary, only more important. You can pray anytime you want and They are sure to help you because They got it worked out so One of Them is on duty all the time. But…you shouldn’t just always think of what God can do for you. I figure God put me here and He can take me back anytime he pleases.”
I couldn’t have said it any better!
All Knowing God, bless the little children in this world and help them learn about You. Amen
