A little girl who, on the way home from church, turned to her mother and said, “Mommy, the Preacher’s sermon this morning confused me.”

  The mother said, “Oh! Why is that?”

  The girl replied, “Well, he said that God is bigger than we are. Is that true?”

  “Yes, that’s true,” the mother replied.

  “He also said that God lives within us. Is that true too?”

  Again the mother replied, “Yes.”

  “Well,” said the girl. “If God is bigger than us and He lives in us, wouldn’t He show through?”
