    Some may be living to die; I am dying to live!

    >
    > A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed.
    > As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation.
    > They talked about so many things and various subjects.
    > When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said:
    > "I don't believe that God exists."
    >
    > "Why do you say that?" asked the customer. "Well, you just have to go
    > out in the street to realize that God doesn't exist.
    > Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people?
    > Would there be abandoned children?
    >
    > If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain.
    > I can't imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things."
    > The customer thought for a moment, but didn't respond because he didn't
    > want to start an argument.
    > The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop.
    >
    > Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long,
    > stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard.
    > He looked dirty and unkempt. The customer turned back and entered the
    > barber shop again and he said to the barber:
    > "You know what? Barbers do not exist."
    > "How can you say that?" asked the surprised barber.
    > "I am here, and I am a barber. And I just worked on you!"
    > "No!" the customer exclaimed. "Barbers don't exist because
    > if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed
    > beards, like that man outside."
    >
    > "Ah, but barbers DO exist! That's what happens when people do not come
    > to me."
    > "Exactly!" affirmed the customer. "That's the point! God, too, DOES
    > exist!
    > That's what happens when people do not go to Him and don't look to Him
    > for help.
    > That's why there's so much pain and suffering in the world."
    >
    > If you think God exists, send this to other people---
    > If you think God does not exist, delete it!
    >
    > BE BLESSED & BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS !!!!!!!
