The following essay was written some years ago by Danny Dutton, 8 years old, who lives in Chula Vista, CA. His assignment was to write about GOD. It’s a little long, but so, so worth the read, a little at a time.
One of GOD’s main jobs is making people. He makes these to put in place of the ones who die, so there will be enough people here on earth to take care of things. He doesn’t make grownups. Just babies. I think because they are smaller and easier to make. That’s so He doesn’t have to take up His valuable time teaching them to talk and walk. He can just leave that up to mothers and fathers. I think it works out pretty good.
GOD’s second most important job is listening to prayers. An awful lot of this goes on, as some people, like preachers pray other times than bed time. GOD doesn’t have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this. As He hears everything, not only prayers, there must be a terrible lot of noise going on in His ears, unless He 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 parent’s head and asking for something they already said you couldn’t have.
…to be continue.
