by faith, not by sight

One day a 10 year old was sitting in a classroom. The teacher was going to explain evolution to the children. The teacher asked a little boy 
TEACHER: Tommy do you see the tree outside? 
TOMMY: Yes. 
TEACHER: Tommy, do you see the grass outside? 
TOMMY: Yes. 
TEACHER: Go outside and look up and see if you can see the sky. 
TOMMY: Okay. (He returned a few minutes later) Yes, I saw the sky. 
TEACHER: Did you see God? 
TOMMY: No. 
TEACHER: That’s my point. We can’t see God because he isn’t there. He just doesn’t exist. 
A little girl spoke up and wanted to ask the boy some questions. 
The teacher agreed and the little girl asked the boy 
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the tree outside? 
TOMMY: Yes 
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy do you see the grass outside? 
TOMMY: Yessssss! 
LITTLE GIRL: Did you see the sky? 
TOMMY: Yessssss! 
LITTLE GIRL: Tommy, do you see the teacher? 
TOMMY: Yes. 
LITTLE GIRL: Do you see her brain? 
TOMMY: No. 
LITTLE GIRL: Then according to what we were taught today in school, she must not have one! 
“FOR WE WALK BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT” 
– 2 CORINTHIANS 5: 7
