"Come in" God said
"So, you would like to interview Me?"
"If you have
the time," I said.
God smiled and said:
"My time is eternity and is enough to do
everything; what questions do you have in mind to
surprises you most about mankind?" I asked.
God answered: "That
they get bored of being children, are in a rush
to grow up, and then long to be chidren again.
That they lose their heath to make money and then
lose their money to restore their health. That by
thinking anxiously about the future, they forget
the present, such that they live neither for the
present nor the future. That they live as if they
will never die, and they die has if they never
took mine and we were silent for a while and then
I asked. "As a parent, what are some of life's
lessons you want your children to learn?"
God replied with a smile: "To learn that they cannot make anyone love them, What they can do is to let themselves be loved. To learn that what is most valuable is not what they have in their lives, but who they have in their lives. To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others. All will be judged individually on their own merits, not as a group on a comparison! To learn that a rich person is not the one who has the most, but is one who needs the the least. To learn that it only takes a few seconds to profound wounds in persons we love, and that it takes many years to heal them. To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness. To learn that there are persons that love them dearly, but simply do not know how to express or show their feelings. To learn that money can buy everything but happiness. To learn that two people can look at the same thing and see it totally differently. To learn that a true friend is someone who knows everything about them and like them anyway. To learn that it is not always enough that they be forgiven by others, but that they have to forgive themselves."
I sat there for a while enjoying the moment.
I thanked Him for his time and all that He has done for me and my family,
and He replied, "Anytime. I am here 24 hours a day. All you have to do is ask for me, and I will answer."
