Sunday Spiritual - "Ain't"

He was just a little boy,
On a week's first day.
Wandering home from Bible school,
And dawdling on the way.

He scuffed his shoes into the grass; even found a caterpillar.
He found a fluffy milk weed pod,
And blew out all the 'filler.'

A bird's nest in a tree overhead,
So wisely placed up so high.
Was just another wonder,
That caught his eager eye.

A neighbor watched his zigzag course,
And hailed him from the lawn;
Asked him where he'd been that day and what was going on.

'I've been to Bible School,' he said
And turned a piece of sod.
He picked up a wiggly worm
Replying, 'I've learned alot about God.'

'M'm, very fine way,' the neighbor Said, 'for a boy to spend his time.'
'If you'll tell me where God is,
I'll give you a brand new dime.'

Quick as a flash the answer came!
Nor were his accents faint.
'I'll give you a dollar, Mister,
If you can tell me where God ain't.'


Read at least the first two lines....Never thought of it!
Jesus died over 2000 years ago.
Nobody has ever referred to HIM as the late Jesus,
Not even the heathens.
Nowhere in history.
Nowhere has HE ever been referred to in the past tense
HE 'is' the Living God!

What a wonderful little story with a huge impact! All I ever have to do is look at the sun rise or set to know God is with me.
