Where is God?

Two young boys were forever getting into trouble...disrupting classes in school, teasing neighborhood children, taking what didnít belong to them. One day their mother asked the pastor over to see if he could talk some sense into them. Rather than threaten or reprimand them, the pastor decided on a more subtle approach. He would try to help the boys see that God is everywhere, that He is aware of everything and is displeased when they acted wrongly. But the pastor wanted the boys to come to this conclusion on their own, so he began by asking some questions.

"Young men," he intoned after having the boys sit down, "I have a question for you. Where is God?"

The two boys just sat there, unsure how to answer.

"Where is God?" the pastor repeated, a bit more firmly. "Surely you know the answer to a simple question like that!" The boys remained silent, too frightened to speak.

"Iíll ask you one more time," the pastor said, this time even more firmly, "WHERE IS GOD?"

At that, the older boy jumped up and grabbed his brother. "Címon, letís get out of here!" he whispered. "Godís missiní and they think we did it!"
