A loving couple had two little boys, ages 8 and 10, who were just terrible kids always getting in trouble.
Running out of ideas, they decided to look to the church.
They heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children in the past, so they called him, and he agreed to give a shot. He asked to see the boys individually, so the eight-year-old was sent to meet with him first. The clergyman sat the boy down and asked him sternly, "Now where is God?"
The boy made no response, so the clergyman repeated the question even louder, "Where is God!?"
Again the boy made no attempt to answer, so the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face, "WHERE IS GOD!?"
The boy suddenly ran out of the room, ran directly home, and slammed himself in his closet. His older brother followed him into the closet and said, "What happened?"
The younger brother replied, "We are in a BIG mess of trouble this time. God has gone missing and they think WE did it!"
