Mischievous Brothers

Two little boys, ages 8 and 10,
are excessively mischievous.
They are
always getting into trouble and
their parents know all about it.

If any mischief occurs in their town,
the two boys are probably involved.
The boys' mother heard that a preacher
in town had been successful in
disciplining children, so she asked
if he would speak with her boys.
The preacher agreed, but he asked
to see them individually.

So the mother sent the 8 year old first,
in the morning, with the older
boy to see the preacher in the afternoon.

The preacher, a huge man with a booming voice,
sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly,

"Do you know where God is, son?"
The boy's mouth dropped open, but he made
no response, sitting there wide-eyed
with his mouth hanging open.

So the preacher repeated the question
in an even sterner tone,

"Where is God?!"

Again, the boy made no attempt to answer.
The preacher raised his voice
even more and shook his finger in
the boy's face and bellowed,

"Where is God?!"

The boy screamed and bolted from the room,
ran directly home and dove
into his closet, slamming the door behind him.

When his older brother found him in the closet,
he asked, "what
happened?" The younger brother,
gasping for breath, replied,

"We are in BIG trouble this time. "

" GOD is missing, and they think we did it! "
