Here’s a cute story… I don’t know the original source, but I found it here: http://www.frtommylane.com/stories/humility/man_dog_cat.htm
It is reported that the following edition of Genesis Chapter 2 was discovered in the Dead Sea Scrolls.
And Adam said, “God, when I was in the garden, you walked with me everyday. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesome here and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me. “
And God said, “No problem! I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will know I love you, even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish and childish and unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourself.”
