Explanation of God


This was written by an 8 year old, Danny Dutton of Chula Vista, CA, for his
third grade homework assignment. The assignment was to explain God. I just
wonder if any of us could do as well???

EXPLANATION OF GOD "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 grownups, just babies. I think 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
beside bedtime. God doesn't have time to listen to the radio or TV because of
this. Because he hears everything, there must be a terrible lot of noise in his
ears, unless he has thought of a way to turn it off."

"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."

"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 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." This is my favorite part. "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"

"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 or do something you think will be more fun like going to
the beach . This is wrong. And besides the sun doesn't come out 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 everywhere 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't 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 anytime he pleases.

And...that's why I believe in God."

(If you believe in God pass this on ~ God bless and Thank God for Children
Saying Grace)

Last week I took my children to a restaurant. My six-year-old son asked if
he could say grace. As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is
great. Thank you for the food, and I would even thank you more if Mom gets us ice
cream for dessert. And Liberty and justice for all! Amen!"

Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby I heard a woman
remark, "That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how
to pray Asking God for ice-cream! Why, I never!"

Hearing this, my son burst into tears and asked me, "Did I do it wrong? Is
God mad at me?"

As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job and God was
certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table.

He winked at my son and said, "I happen to know that God thought that was a
great prayer. "Really?" my son asked. "Cross my heart," the man replied.
Then in a theatrical whisper he added (indicating the woman whose remark had
started this whole thing), " Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. A little
ice cream is good for the soul sometimes."

Naturally, I bought my kids ice cream at the end of the meal. My son stared
at his for a moment and then did something I will remember the rest of my
life. He picked up his sundae and without a word, walked over and placed it in
front of the woman. With a big smile he told her, "Here, this is for you. Ice
cream is good for the soul sometimes; and my soul is good already."

The End.
