I once heard a story of a father who was trying to read the paper with his young son sitting on the floor beside him. The child kept disturbing his father and distracting him from the article that he was trying to read. After several attempts of the father telling the young son to not disturb him the father found a picture of the world in the paper. He then tore the picture into several different small parts and then handed all the pieces to his son.
His son asked,”Dad, what do you want me to do with these pieces of paper?” Cleverly thinking, the father then said,”I want you to take these pieces of paper and reconstruct the picture of the world.” The son went to work and the father finally thought he would have some peace but no sooner than he got relaxed he heard his son say,”I got it Dad!”
To his surprise he looked down to see the picture of the world back together and then he said to his young son,”How did you reconstruct the world back together so quickly?” The son then said,”Awe dad it was easy”. What do you mean it was easy, the father asked? “Well dad there was a picture of a man on the back of the world and when I put the man together the world came together.”
The father then picked up his son and said,”I am proud of you son because if we are not together then how can we expect something else to come together?”
