Here’s a Keeper!!! Out of the mouths of babes>
> Little Boy’s Explanation of God —
> I certainly don’t think an adult could explain this more beautifully!
> It was written by an 8-year-old named Danny Dutton, who lives in Chula

> Vista , CA . He wrote it for his third grade homework assignment, to
> ‘explain God.’ I wonder if any of us could have done as well?
> (and he had such an assignment, in California , and someone published it,

> I guess miracles do happen!)
> ‘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.’ And God did not let Jesus stay in the grave, but
> raised him from the dead
> ‘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

> botherGod. 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 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 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, please pass this on, and may God bless you too.)

> Have an awesome day, and know that someone has thought about you!
