A Primary School teacher asked her pupils to write
an essay on ”A wish you want from God?” At the
end of the day, the teacher collected all the essays
given by her pupils. She took them to her house,
sat down and started marking.
While marking the essays, she sees a strange essay
written by one of her pupils. That essay made her
very emotional. Her husband came and sat beside
her and saw her crying. The husband asked her,
“What happened?” “What’s making you cry”
She answered “Read this. It is one of my pupil’s
“Oh God, Make me a Television. I want to live like
the TV in my house.
In my house, the TV is very valuable. All of my
family members sit around it. They are very
interested in it. When the TV is talking, my parents
listen to it very happily.
They don’t shout at the TV. They don’t quarrel with
the TV. They don’t slap the TV. So I want to
become a TV.
The TV is the centre of attraction in my house. I
want to receive the same special care that the TV
receives from my parents. Even when it is not
working, the TV has a lot of value.
When my dad and mom come home, they
immediately sit in front of the TV, switch it on and
spend hours watching it. The TV is stealing the
time of my dad and my mom. If I become a TV,
then they will spend their time with me.
While watching the TV, my parents laugh a lot and
they smile many times. But I want my parents to
laugh and smile with me also. So please God make
me a TV.
And last but not the least, if I become a TV, surely I
can make my parents happy and entertain them.
Lord I won’t ask you for anything more. I just want
to live like a TV. Please turn me into a TV.
The husband completed reading the essay. He said
“My God, poor kid. He feels lonely. He did not
receive enough love and care from his parents. His
parents are horrible.”
The eyes of the primary School teacher filled with
tears. She looked at her husband and said, “Our son
wrote this essay.”
What do you think of this piece?
May our children never desire to be WhatsApp
Phones or TV
Pope Francis wrote: why do we sleep in church but
stay awake in bars until sunrise? Why is it so hard
to talk to God but so easy to chat? Why is it so
easy to ignore a Godly text message. And forward the funny or the nasty ones? , why is that we spend more times with our phones but less with our books.
It all good to be righteous and let live an examplary life,
