LESSON: In our recent Bible readings, we see that man is being his old self. We see mankind not getting along with others. This is really sad when families cannot get along. Let's mend hard feelings.
PRAYER: Father, help me to love and respect others, especially those in my family. Amen!
Two Little Boys
A couple had two little boys, ages 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous. The two were always getting into trouble and their parents could be assured that if any mischief occurred in their town their two young sons were in some way involved. The parents were at their wits end as to what to do about their sons' behavior. The mother had heard that a pastor in town had been successful in disciplining children in the past, so she asked her husband if he thought they should send the boys to speak with the Pastor. The husband said, "We might as well. We need to do something before I really lose my temper!" The Pastor agreed to speak with the boys, but asked to see them individually. The 8 year old went to meet with him first. The Pastor sat the boy down and asked him sternly, "Where is God?" The boy made no response, so the Pastor repeated the question in an even sterner tone, "Where is God?" Again the boy made no attempt to answer. So the Pastor raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face, "WHERE IS GOD?" At that the boy bolted from the room and ran directly home, slamming himself in the closet. Hid older brother followed him into the closet and asked what had happened. The younger brother replied, "we are in BIG trouble this time. God is missing and they think we did it!"
