A young boy wanted a new bike for Christmas. However, his mother told him they did not have enough money for a bike, but if he would tell Jesus what a good boy he would be maybe Jesus would allow him to have one. The young boy sat down to write Jesus a letter.

He began the letter with, "Dear Jesus I will be good for one year..."

That seemed a little too much to promise though, so he scribbled that out and wrote, "Dear Jesus I will be good for one month..."

That was too much too, and so he scribbled that out and wrote, "Dear Jesus I will be good for one whole week..."

That was a little better, but a short reflection on the current week's activities soon brought him back to reality. He'd already gotten punished three times, and this was only Monday. In disgust he tore up the paper and went for a walk.

As he walked he passed by the local church were there was a Nativity scene. Suddenly, a thought occurred to him. He began to run as fast as he could and, when he passed by the figure of Mary, he scooped her up into his arms and ran home.

Arriving back home, he ran straight into his room, where he began a new letter, this time in earnest... "Dear Jesus if you ever want to see your mother again..."

But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand. Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry. -I Corinthians 10:5
