A Profound Thought For Today

A   child of 8 – in California – was asked to explain God as part of his school   homework.

This   is what he wrote:-

One   of God’s main jobs is making people. He makes them to replace the ones that   die, so there will be enough people to   take care of things on Earth. He doesn’t make grown ups, just babies. He does   this because they are smaller and easier to make.   That way 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. An awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things,   pray at times besides bedtimes. 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’s and Dad’s head asking for something they said you couldn’t   have.

Atheists are people who don’t believe in God. I don’t think there are any in  Chula Vista. At least there aren’t any who come to our church.

Jesus is God’s son. He used to do all the hard work like walking on water and   performing miracles and people 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 OK.

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 any more. 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 but more important. You can pray any time 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.

You should always go to church on Sunday because it makes God happy and if there’s anybody you want to make happy, it’s God.

Don’t skip church to do something you think will be more fun like going to the beach.   This is wrong, And besides the sun doesn’t come out at the beach until noon anyway.

If you don’t believe in God, besides being an atheist, you will be very lonely  because your parents can’t go anywhere with you, like to camp, but God can. It is good to know He’s around you when you’re scared in the dark or when you can swim and you get thrown into real deep   water by big kids.

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 any time he pleases.

And, that’s why I believe in God.
