A boy was sitting on a park bench with one hand restin on an open Bible. He was loudly exclaiming his praise to God. "Hallelujah! Hallelujah! God is great!" he yelled without worrying whethere anyone heard him or not.

Shortly after , along came a man who had recently completed some studies at a local university. Geeling himslf very enlightened in the ways of truth and very eager to sho this enlightenment, he asked the boy about the sourse of his joy.

"Hey" asked the boy in return whith a bright laugh, "Don't you have any idea what God is able to do ? I just read the God opened up the wabves of the Red Sea and led the whole nation of Israel right through the middle."

The enlightened man laughed lightly, sat down next to the boy and began to try to open his eyes to the "realities" of the miracles of the Bible . "That can all be very easily explained. Modern scholarship has shown that the Red Sea in that area was only 10 inches deep at that time. It was no problem for the Israelites to wade across."

The boy was stumped. His eyes wandered from the man back to the Bible laying open in his lap. The man, content that he had enlightened a poor, naive young person to the finer points of scientific insight, turned to go. Scarcelyi had he taken two steps when the boy began to rejoice and praise louder then before. The man turned to ask the reason for this resumed jubilation.

"Wow!" exclaimed the boy happily, "God is greater then I thought! Not only did He lead the whole nation of Israel through the Red Sea, He topped it off by drowning the whole Egyptian army in 10 inches of water ! "
