We All Do It To God

Two sisters aged 4 and 6 are skipping along a bushy path a few metres from home to buy toffees, when they lose their coins. They look everywhere on and around the path, but do not recover their money. Younger Sister has a brilliant idea, “Let’s pray to God to help us find our money.” Older Sister prays to God saying, “Dear God, if you help us find our money, we promise to give you half of it.”

After the prayer, Younger Sister nudges Older Sister in the ribs and asks, “What have you done? Don’t you know that if we give God half of our money, we won’t have enough left to buy the toffees?” Older Sister smiles a knowing smile, draws her kid sister closer to her and whispers, “Oh, don’t worry about that. I did not mean it. I only said it to trick God into helping us!”


  1. lol...

    We all do it indeed, promise and fail to hold our end of the bargain.
    We forget he knows the heart of man, truly he's a merciful God.

  2. Ma tricki wo doesn't work with God. We seem to forget that.

  3. now i wonder if God is not just having fun playing us like a 'playstation'. sometimes it feels like what i see folks do with robots. lol.

  4. lol... hmm...we sure do it too!

  5. lucci:
    Yes, God is truly merciful!
