It’s very important to be truthful while saying grace. But one little boy took being honest too far.

Being Honest While Saying Grace

Following a great sermon on lifestyle evangelism one family thought they had better do something to be better witnesses to Jesus.

So they invited their neighbors to dinner the following Friday night.

When it came to the meal, the hostess was keen to show their neighbors that they upheld Christian standards in their home.

So she asked little 5 year old Johnny to say grace.

Little Johnny was a bit shy. “I don’t know what to say” There was an awkward pause, followed by a reassuring smile from the boy’s mother.

“Well darling,” she said, ” just say what Daddy said at breakfast this morning.”

Obediently, the boy repeated, “Oh God, we’ve got those awful people coming to dinner tonight”

Uh oh. I’m sure God will appreciate his honesty, though!
