The minister’s son was invited to his friend’s house for dinner.
Before they ate, the boy bowed his head and waited for the blessing to be said.
But everyone else started helping themselves to the food, and he looked puzzled.
“What’s wrong? Why aren’t you eating?” asked his friend’s mom.
The boy who had been taught to give thanks, asked, “Don’t you pray at meals?”
The father answered they did not.
“Oh, I see,” said the boy, ” you’re just like my dog – you just dive right in.”
