Be Careful What You Pray For!

The Atheist and the Bear

An atheist was taking a walk through the woods. ‘What majestic trees! What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!’, he said to himself.

As he continued walking alongside the river he heard a rustling in the bushes. Turning to look, he saw a 7 foot grizzly charging towards him.

He ran as fast as he could up the path. Looking over his shoulder he saw that the bear was closing in on him. His heart was pumping frantically and he tried to run even faster.

He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw the bear raising his paw to take a swipe at him.

At that instant the atheist cried out: ‘Oh my God!…’

Time stopped.
The bear froze.
The forest was silent.

It was then that a bright light shone upon the man and a voice came out of the sky saying:

‘You deny my existence for all of these years, teach others I don’t exist and even credit creation to a cosmic accident.  Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?’

The atheist looked directly into the light.

‘It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps, could you make the BEAR a Christian?’

‘Very well, ‘said the voice. The light went out, and the sounds of the forest resumed.could you make the BEAR a Christian?

And then the bear lowered his paw, bowed his head and spoke: ‘Lord, bless this food which I am about to receive and for which I am truly thankful, Amen.’

    Wow. That had quite a twist at the end. XD I loved this so much. 😊 It has a great point. I must admit that I laughed at what the bear said though; that was very amusing. 😂

      If you pray for patience, your patience will inevitably get tested to the extreme. So, be careful what you pray for… 🙂 I might have been thinking out loud because this post made think of those things I pray for, get tested with, and then go through that painful growth spurt as a result. Even the title of your post calls that to mind! 😀

      I got it now! Yes, we pray for things and then we find out we need some “preparation” from the Lord before we can get what we ask for. I just think of the verse which says God disciplines those whom He loves…(Hebrews 12:6).

      It is the Lord who decides what is best for us, but you already know that!

      🙂
