Do you agree:
To those of us who
have children in our lives, whether they are our own, our grandchildren, nieces and nephews, or students...here is
something to make you chuckle.
children are out of control you can take comfort from the
thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to His own
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,
"No way!" says Eve
"Yes, way!" says Adam
"Do NOT eat the fruit!" said God.
"Why?" Adam and Eve both ask.
"Because I am your father and I said so!" God replied,
(wondering why he hadn't stopped creation after making the
elephants). A few minutes later God saw his children
having an apple break and He was ticked!
"Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit?" God, as our
first parent, asked.
"Uh huh" Adam replied.
"Then why did you" said the Father.
"I don't know" said Eve.
"She started it!" Adam said.
"Did not!" said Eve.
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 this story. If you have persistently and
lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven't taken
it, don't be too hard on yourself. If God had trouble
raising children, what makes you think it would be a piece of
cake for you?
