My friend's 5 year old granddaughter looked at the stars one night and exclaimed, "God's home! All his lights are on!"
"When God put a calling on your life He already factored in your stupidity."
"In all my years of pastoring, I have learned this lesson: A person's spiritual maturity is not truly visible until they DON'T get their way. Then you see the real person."
- Erik Reed
While walking through the woods one day, I was surprised to hear a child's voice. I followed the sound, trying in vain to understand the child's words. When I spotted a boy perched on a rock, I realized why his words had made no sense: He was repeating the alphabet.
"Why are you saying your ABC's so many times?" I asked him.
The child replied, "I'm saying my prayers."
I couldn't help but laugh. "Prayers? All I hear is the alphabet."
Patiently the child explained, "Well, I don't know all the words, so I give God the letters. He knows what I'm trying to say."
Two kids are talking to each other.
One says, "I'm really worried. My dad works twelve hours a day to give me a nice home and good food. My mom spends the whole day cleaning and cooking for me. I'm worried sick!"
The other kid says, "What have you got to worry about? Sounds to me like you've got it made!"
The first kid says, "What if they try to escape?"
