THE RISK OF ARGUING WITH CHILDREN

By:  WSP

In a grade school lesson, a teacher was explaining a little bit about whales.

A little girl in class piped up and said: “I just learned that Jonah in the bible was swallowed by a whale.”


The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was relatively small.


The girl said: "I am sure Jonah was swallowed by a whale."


The teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; that it was physically impossible.


The little girl replied: "My Sunday school teacher told me Jonah was swallowed and she would not lie to me.”


A bit perturbed by this, the teacher proclaimed: "That is a “story” from the bible, it is not factual, and I will not argue with you."


After a little thought, the girl responded: "Well, when I get to heaven, I will ask Jonah".


Now challenged, the teacher spouted: "What if Jonah didn’t go to heaven?"


Not at all daunted, the girl quipped, " . . . . . ok then you ask him."

In other words, the prayers of God's people collectively fill heavenly bowls with sweet aroma, much like the burnt offerings did in days of old. In Revelation 8, we discover what these bowls are used for:
"Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden alter w…
