He couldn’t comprehend just how bad things had become, so he called one of his angels, and asked her to go to earth for a time and to report back on what she found there.
When the angel returned, she told God, “Yes Lord, things are really bad on Earth. 95% of the people are misbehaving and only 5% are not”.
God thought for a while, thinking that surely things down on Earth couldn’t really be that bad.
Thinking that maybe he needed a second opinion, God decided to send down another angel to see what they had to say about the status of the people on Earth.
So God called another angel and sent her to Earth for a time.
When the second angel returned, she went to God and said, “Yes Lord, sadly it’s true. The Earth is in decline. 95% of the population are misbehaving, but 5% are being good”.
As you might imagine, God was not pleased at all to hear this bad news confirmed.
So he decided to send an email to the 5% of the people who were being good, because he wanted to encourage them, give them a little something to help them keep going.
Do you know what the email said?
Okay, just wondering. I didn’t get one either.
