Two young boys in a Catholic school had been continually misbehaving and were sent to the principal’s office on several occasions. The principal knew what they really needed was to have God in their lives, so she brought the first boy in and set him down. “I want to ask you a question. Where is God?” The young boy was scared to death by the question. He didn’t know how to answer. He just sat there. She asked him 3 or 4 times, “Where is God?” Still, the young boy didn’t answer. She told him that she wanted him to think about that question. So she sent him out of her office. As he was leaving, the second boy, whose turn it was to see the principal, asked the first, “What’s going on?” The first boy said, “I don’t know, but God is missing, and they’re trying to pin it on us.”
