Transcript of "unless you become..."

  1. 1. Unless you become like little children… <ul><li>Last week, I took my daughter to a restaurant. She asked if she could say grace. </li></ul>
  2. 2. As we bowed our heads she said, God is good, God is great. Thank you for the food, and I would even thank you more if Mom gets us ice cream for dessert. And Liberty and justice for all! Amen!&quot;
  3. 3. Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, I heard a woman remark, &quot;That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!&quot;
  4. 4. Hearing this, my daughter burst into tears and asked me, Did I do it wrong? Is God mad at me? As I held her and assured her that she had done a terrific job, and God was certainly not mad at her, an elderly gentleman approached the table.
  5. 5. He winked at my daughter and said, I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer! Really? Cross my heart!
  6. 6. Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added (indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing), Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. A little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes.
  7. 7. Naturally, I bought my daughter ice cream at the end of the meal. She stared at hers for a moment, and then did something I will remember the rest of my life. She picked up her sundae and, without a word, walked over and placed it in front of the woman.
  8. 8. With a big smile she told her, Here, this is for you. Ice cream is good for the soul sometimes; and my soul is good already!
  9. 9. I hope you also get some ice cream today. Sometimes it’s good for the soul!
