Being a Christian

Unit: Exploring Christianity
Category: Meeting with Jesus

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a parochial school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. A teacher made a note, and posted it on the apple tray, “Take only one. God is watching.” Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. One of the children wrote a note, “Take all you want. God is watching the apples.” Interesting picture of God, isn’t it! Sounds like the same picture many adults have; God is watching us and every little thing we do will come under judgment by God, so be very careful and be very obedient! It’s amazing how often religious people use this kind of fear and guilt to motivate godly living.
