A mother asked her little boy to please get the broom from the back porch.  “But it’s dark out there!” he protested.

“Don’t be scared, “Mom said.  “Jesus is out there.  He’ll take care of you.”  When the child looked skeptical, his mother continued, “Jesus is everywhere.  You’ll be safe”.

After a moment, the boy went to the back door and cracked it open.  Peering into the dark, he called,  “Jesus, if you’re out there, will you please hand me the broom?”
