Child Explains God

8 year old Danny says: 

One of God’s main jobs is making people.  He makes them to replace the ones that die, so there will be enough people to take care of things on earth.

He doesn’t make grown-ups, just babies.  I think because they are smaller and easier to make.  That way He doesn’t have to take up His valuable time teaching them to talk and to walk.  He can just leave that to moms and dads.

God’s second most important job is listening to prayers.  An awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things, pray at times besides bedtime.  God does not have time to listen to the radio or TV because of this prayer time.

God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere which keeps Him pretty busy.  So you should not go wasting His time by going over your Mom and Dad’s head asking for something they said you could not have.

Atheists are people who don’t believe in God.  I don’t think there are any here in my town; at least there aren’t any who come to our church.

Jesus is God’s Son.  He used to do all the hard work like walking on water and performing miracles and people finally got tired of Him preaching to them and they crucified Him.  But He was good and kind, like His Father and He told His Father that they didn’t know what they were doing and to forgive them and God said, “OK.”

His Dad (God) appreciated everything that Jesus had done and all His hard work on earth so He told Him He didn’t have to go out on the road anymore.  He could stay in Heaven.  So Jesus did.  And now He helps His Dad out by listening to prayers and seeing things which are important for God to take care of and which ones He can take care of Himself without having to bother his Dad.  Like a secretary, only more important.

Mark 10:14
