A couple had two little
boys, ages 8 and 10,
who were excessively mischievous.
They were always getting into trouble
and their parents knew that,
if any mischief occurred in their town,
their sons were probably involved.
The boys' mother heard that a
clergyman in town
had been successful in disciplining
so she asked if he would speak with her boys.
The clergyman agreed, but asked to see them individually.
the mother sent her 8-year-old in first that morning,
with the older boy to see the clergyman in the afternoon.
The clergyman, a huge man with a booming voice,
sat the younger boy down and
asked him sternly,
"Where is God?"
The boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no response,
sitting there with his
mouth hanging open, wide eyed.
So the clergyman repeated the question
in an even sterner tone,
"Where is God!!?"
the boy made no attempt to answer.
So the clergyman raised his voice even more
and shook his finger in the boy's face
"WHERE IS GOD!?"
The boy screamed and bolted from the room,
ran directly home and dove into his
slamming the door behind him.
When his older brother found him in the closet,
he asked, "What happened?"
The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied,
"We are in BIG trouble this
God is missing - and they think WE did it.!"
