WHY GOD CREATED CHILDREN
To those of us who have children in our lives, whether they are
our own, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or students... here is
something to make you chuckle. Whenever your children are out of
control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's
omnipotence did not extend to His own children.
After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve.
And the first thing he said was "DON'T!"
"Don't what?" Adam replied.
"Don't eat the forbidden fruit." God said.
"Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey Eve...we have
"No Way!" "Yes way!"
"Do NOT eat the fruit!" said God. "Why"
"Because I am your Father and I said so!" God replied,
wondering why he hadn't stopped creation after making the
elephants. A few minutesclater, God saw His children having an
apple break and He was ticked!
"Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit?" God asked.
"Uh huh," Adam replied.
"Then why did you?" said the Father.
"I don't know," said Eve.
"She started it!" Adam said
Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that
Adam and Eve should have children of their own. Thus the pattern
was set and it has never changed.
BUT THERE IS REASSURANCE IN THE STORY!
If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children
wisdom and they haven't taken it, don't be hard on yourself. If
God had trouble raising children, what makes you think it would
be a piece of cake for you?
THINGS TO THINK ABOUT!
1. You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to
walk and talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to
sit down and be quiet.
2. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your own
3. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat
word for word what you shouldn't have said.
4. The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind
yourself that there are children more awful than your own.
5. We child proofed our homes, but they are still getting in.
ADVICE FOR THE DAY!
Be nice to your kids. They will choose your nursing home.
