A boy was sitting on a park bench with one hand resting on an open Bible. He was loudly exclaiming his praise to God. "Hallelujah! Hallelujah! God is great!" he yelled without worrying whether anyone heard him or not. 
       
Shortly after, along came a man who had recently completed some studies at a local university. Feeling himself enlightened in truth and eager to show this enlightenment, he asked the boy about the source of his joy. 
       
"I just read that God opened up the waves of the Red Sea and led the whole nation of Israel across on dry land to safety from the Egyptian army pursuing them." 
       
The man laughed lightly, sat down next to the boy and said: "That can all be very easily explained. Modern scholarship has shown that the Red Sea in that area was only 10-inches deep at that time. It was no problem for the Israelites to wade across." 
       
The boy was stumped. His eyes wandered from the man back to the Bible laying in his lap.

The man turned to go. Scarcely had he taken two steps when the boy began to rejoice and praise louder than before. The man turned to ask the reason for this resumed jubilation. 

       
"Wow!" exclaimed the boy happily, "God is greater than I thought! Not only did He lead the whole nation of Israel through the Red Sea, He topped it off by drowning the whole Egyptian army in 10 inches of water!"
