One Sunday morning an instructor in a theological school was sharing a seat with a small boy on a shuttle train, says the Philadelphia Bulletin. The boy was holding a Sunday-school lesson leaflet. “Do you go to Sunday school, my boy?” asked the man in a friendly way. “Yes, sir.” “Tell me, my boy,” continued the man, thinking to have some fun with the lad, “tell me where God is, and I’ll give you an apple.” The boy looked up sharply at the man and promptly replied, “I will give you a whole barrel of apples if you will tell me where He is not.”
