"Look what I made, Mommy!" says the little boy who shows off his picture to his mother.
"I see!" says Mom. "It's a beautiful picture. But, did you know that you didn't make that by yourself?"
"I did! I did it ALL BY MYSELF!"
"You drew the picture all by yourself. But, where did you get the paper?"
"Miss Thelma gave it to me."
"So, Miss Thelma helped you draw that picture by giving you the paper. Where did Miss Thelma get the paper?"
"From the store."
"So not only did Miss Thelma help you, the store helped you. Where did the store get the paper?"
"From the paper maker?"
"The factory made the paper to give to the store that gave it to Miss Thelma. How did the factory make the paper?"
"So the Trees provided the materials for the factory to make the paper that sent it to the store to sell to Miss Thelma so she could give it to you. Interesting. Where did the trees come from?"
"So the seeds grew and became trees that provided the materials for the factory to make the paper that sent it to the store to sell to Miss Thelma so she could give it to you. Where did the seeds come from?"
The little boy thinks...
"Mom? Where DO the seeds come from?"
"The seeds came from the first tree. Do you know where THAT came from?"
The little boy shrugs.
"The Bible says, In Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
This means that God created the first tree. So, everything was created with God. This means that even this picture that you drew could not have been done without God. So, did you create this picture all by yourself?"
The little boy thinks about this for a moment, then says, "No. God helped me draw this picture."
"That's right! Don't ever forget that you can't do ANYTHING without God!"
