Father, do you let me go to the church?

`Father, do you let me go to the church today? The little girl asked her father on Sunday.

`No!` said her father who was an atheist. The church is not for you. It is for grandparents.

`But father, at school at the Religion classes I learnt that the fourth commandment of the Lord is that we must go to the Church on every Sunday to glorify God.

`It is a nonsense. ‘her father continued.

`Then father, if it is a foolishness to accomplish the fourth commandment of the Lord then foolishness is as well to accomplish His fifth commandment which teaches us to respect our parents.

These words of the girl passed like a thunder through the mind of the father who in the end let her go to the church.
