God, Are You Listening?
A man was walking through a forest pondering life. He walked,
pondered, walked, and pondered. He felt very close to nature
and even close to God. He felt so close to God that he felt if
he spoke God would listen.
So he asked, “God, are you listening?”
And God replied, “Yes my son, I am here.”
The man stopped and pondered some more.
He looked towards the sky and said, “God, what is a million years to you?”
God replied, “Well my son, a second to me is like a million years to you.”
So the man continued to walk and to ponder… walk and ponder…
Then he looked to the sky again and said, “God, what is a million
dollars to you?”
And God replied, “My son, my son…a penny to me is like a million
dollars to you. It means almost nothing to me. It does not even have
a value it is so little.”
The man looked down, pondered a bit and then looked up to the sky
and said, “God, can I have a million dollars?”
And God replied, “In a second.”
