Which One Did God Believe?

Updated: Sep 14, 2020

A man sat through a church service and then on the way home he fussed about the sermon, he fussed about the traffic, he fussed about the heat, and he fussed about the lateness of the meal being served. Then he bowed and prayed. His son was watching him all the way through this post-church experience.


Just as they were beginning to pass the food he said, “Daddy, did God hear you when we left the church and you started fussin’ about the sermon and about the traffic and about the heat?”


The father sort of blushed and said, “Well, yes, son, He heard me.”


“Well, Daddy, did God hear you when you just prayed for the food right now.”


And he says, “Well, yes, son, He… He… He heard me.”


“So, well, Daddy, which one did God believe?”
