Those Children of Israel

In Sunday School one morning, little Joey raised his hand to ask a question that had been on his mind for some time. His conversation with the teacher went like this:

Joey: “Sir, there’s something I just can’t figure out.”

Teacher: “Alright, Joey, what is it?”

Joey: “The children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, right?”

Teacher: “That’s right.”

Joey: “And the children of Israel beat up the Philistines, right?”

Teacher: “Yes, they won many battles against the Philistines.”

Joey: “And the children of Israel built the Temple, didn’t they?”

Teacher: “That’s correct.”

Joey: “And the children of Israel did a lot of other important things too, right?”

Teacher: “Yes, they did.”

Joey: “Okay, what I want to know is, what were all the grown-ups doing?”

That’s a question we might ask today. If you’re a grown-up, how are you living these days? Ponder on that for a while right now.
