A little boy wanted $100 badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing happened.
Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100.
When the postal authorities received the letter to God, they decided to send it to the President.
The president was so impressed that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a $5 bill, figuring this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.
The little boy was delighted with the $5 bill and sat down to write a thank-you note to God, which read:
“Dear God: Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that for some reason you sent it through Washington, D.C., and the government deducted $95 in taxes.”
