God and Children
Why God Created Children
To those of us who have children in our lives, whether they are our own, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or students...here is something to make you chuckle. Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to His own children. After creating the Heaven and the Earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing he said was "DON'T!"
"Don't what?" Adam replied.
"Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey Eve...we have forbidden
A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He
"Then why did you?" said the Father.
"She started it!" Adam said.
Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own. Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.
Moral : But there is reassurance in the story - if you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven't taken it, don't be hard on yourself. If God had trouble raising His children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you?
