Torn apart

A tired father really wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by his little girl, Shelby. She wanted to know what the United States looked like. Finally, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which was printed the map of the country. Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it to her and said, “Go into the other room and see if you can put this together. This will show you our whole country today.”

After just a few minutes, Shelby returned and handed him the map correctly pieced together. The father was so surprised and asked how she had finished so quickly.”oh,” she said, “on the other side of the paper is a picture of Jesus. When I got all of Jesus back where He belonged, then our whole country just came together.”

Isn’t it funny how kids sometimes realize the importance of Christ before adults do?
