God Sends an E-mail

One day God was looking down at Earth and saw all of the rascally behavior that was going on. He decided to send an angel down to Earth to check it out. So down the angel went. The angel returned and said to God, "Yes, it is bad on Earth: 95% are misbehaving and 5% are not." God thought for a moment and said, "Maybe I had better send down a second angel to get another opinion." So God called another angel to send to Earth for a time too. The second angel returned and said to God and, "Yes, the Earth is in decline; 95% are misbehaving and 5% are being good." God was not pleased. So God decided to E-mail the 5% that were good because He wanted to encourage them. Give them a little something to help them keep going. Do you know what that E-mail said? No? I didn't get one either. But you know, that's why we've got to depend on God's grace. All of us are recovering from being rascally, and none of us are fully recovered.
