Two little boys were best friends at church, but they both had a reputation for getting into trouble. One Sunday, one of the boys was home sick, but the other boy, not wanting to let his friend down, was twice as bad as normal.
As he was running through the sanctuary after church, the pastor grabbed him and angrily said, “Where’s God?!”
The little boy was frightened and didn’t know what to say.
The pastor continued, “I want you to go home and think about it and I don’t want you to come back until you can tell me where God is.”
The boy went home and called his sick friend on the telephone. “Guess what,” he said. “They’ve lost God, and they’re trying to blame that one on us, too.”
