Interview with God


"
Come in," God said.
"So, you would like to interview Me?"

"If you have the time," I said.
God smiled and said: "My time
is eternity and is enough to do
everything; what questions do
you have in mind to ask me?"

"What surprises you most about
mankind?"

God answered: "That they get
bored of being children, are
in a rush to grow up, and then
long to be children again.

That they lose their health
to make money and then lose
their money to restore their
health.

That by thinking anxiously
about the future, they forget
the present, such that they live
neither for the present nor the
future.

That they live as if they will
never die, and they die as if
they had never lived . . ."

God's hands took mine and
we were silent for a while
and then I asked . . . "As a
parent, what are some of
life's lessons you want your
children to learn?"

God replied with a smile:
"To learn that they cannot
make anyone love them.
What they can do is to let
themselves be loved.

To learn that what is most
valuable is not what they
have in their lives, but who
they have in their lives.

To learn that it is not good
to compare themselves to
others. All will be judged
individually on their own
merits, not as a group on
a comparison basis!

To learn that a rich person
is not the one who has the
most, but is one who needs
the least.

To learn that it only takes
a few seconds to open
profound wounds in persons
we love, and that it takes
many years to heal them.

To learn to forgive by
practicing forgiveness.

To learn that there are persons
that love them dearly, but simply
do not know how to express or
show their feelings.

To learn that money can buy
everything but happiness.

To learn that two people can
look at the same thing and
see it totally different.

To learn that a true friend is
someone who knows everything
about them . . . and likes them
anyway.

To learn that it is not always
enough that they be forgiven
by others, but that they have
to forgive themselves."

I sat there for a while enjoying
the moment. I thanked Him
for his time and for all that
He has done for me and my
family, and He replied,
"Anytime. I'm here 24 hours
a day. All you have to do is
ask for me, and I'll answer."

People will forget what you
said. People will forget what
you did, but people will never
forget how you made them feel.
