He Pleased God
The LORD: Did you see the sunrise this morning, Enoch?
Enoch: Yes, Lord - magnificent! But that sunset last Tuesday was just incredible. How do you do that? Well, that’s a stupid question, isn’t it?
The LORD: Someday, I’ll show you how it’s done. And how’s the family?
Enoch: Lord, you know. You know all things. We’re having some trouble with Abijam, but we think he’ll be OK.
The LORD: I am really pleased with how you and your wife are bringing up your children.
Enoch: Well, it takes a lot of work with all of the wickedness around, but we want them all to know you.
The LORD: The wickedness is going to get a lot worse.
Enoch: Lord, why will you let that happen? Things are so bad now, and so many people get hurt.
The LORD: I have my reasons. Someday I’ll tell you.
Enoch: What will happen to my children?
The LORD: You have taught them well, but they will each make their own choices as you have.
Enoch: Seeing all the evil in the world and the trouble which people are causing for others and bringing on themselves just torments my soul every day.
The LORD: I know.
Enoch: Of course you do.
The LORD: How would you like to leave it all behind?
Enoch: Well, I’ll do that when I die.
The LORD: You won’t have to die.
Enoch: What do you mean? Can you do that?
The LORD: Enoch...
Enoch: I know - another stupid question. You are God.
The LORD: Enoch, come here. Let’s go home.
