all rights reserved to Carlo Collodi


An long time ago there lived an simple potter, who made an simple living by making and selling pottery. One day however the potter decided to make something extreamly speacil for himself, you see while this man made an honest living he was also very lonely and wanted more then anything to be an father. So from the last of his clay he formed an perfect little boy.


And he called this little boy Pinnocchio, as soon as the little clay boy was dry he began to paint him to give him some color and to make him extra speacil. As soon as he was done the potter stand back to admire his work and spoke."If only you where alive my preacous preacous son, that way I can love and care for you like an real father. " He put the clay boy at the window were the sun could dry off the paint.

However as soon as he came back to check up on his clay son,he was gone. He rushed out of the house calling frantically for his little clay son thinking he had been stolen by that wicked entertainer that played in town. However instead what he saw amazed him he saw his son pinnocchio standing in front of an shop window, he apporched him with concern as well as worrie."Pinnnocchio,you shouldn't have ran off like that I was soo worried for you. Come my son lets go home." he says holding out his hand.


However the clay figure didn't move nor did he accept his hand he simply replied."No, I will not go home I rather stay out here or join the circus." His fathers eyes watered as he heard his son be defieant and disrespectful towards him, however he spoke."But my little Pinnocchio thats not the life I have layed out for you,for you are so much more then this and trust me the circus life might be sweet for an season but it will soon become sour but if thats what you want I won't stop you."


The potter said with teary eyes, the clay figured smiled and replied."It is." The potter simply noded and walked sadly home by himself however he left the window open for his clay son should he ever decide to return.


Pinnocchio now finally free decided to go off and join the circus, however he could hear an faint cheerp inside his ear as it spoke softly."You should honor your father ,he create you and he does knows whats best for you." The clay boy rolled his eyes and replied."By who's authority should i do that?" The voice replied in a rather harsh tone."God's authority, Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee." Pinnocchio replied."Thats rubbish why should I do something simply because you or anyone else says and besides he could have easily forced me to come home and obey him."

The voice cherped back."He didn't because he loves you and he wanted to show you how much he loved you by letting you make your own decessions and God has done the same for humanity by giving his son to die for our sins." Pinnocchio replied."Sin whats sin?"

the voice replied."Sin is the resoult of living our lives contrary to Gods law. " The clay figure rolled his eyes and replied."Well if you break the law you have to pay an fine so I can easily pay off my own sin I don't need someone dying simply because I choose to live my own life." The voice replied and spoke."Are you sure? the wages of sin is death for all have come short of the glory of God."

Pinnocchio's eyes widden and replied."Wait i was just given life I can't simply die." The voice replied in an chuckle."oh you can you just don't know when and trust me when you do die you'll give an full account before the ultimate judge." Pinnocchio replied causally." So what i died once and the wage has been repayed." The voice replies back."No it hasn't and i wouldn't be so causal to brush off my words so easily, because even now God is taking account of all of your wicked deeds and words aswell as someone else who wants something of yours."


Pinnocchio replies."well if you wants it he can have it." the voice replied again."trust me he already does, you see Pinnocchio Jesus died for your sins so you won't suffer the ultimate penalty." Pinnocchio replied."And what would that be." the voice replied rather grimmly."Eternal punishment and serpration from God." Pinnocchio looked scared for an bit."well what must i do?" The vocie replied."repent and give your life the Jesus then and only then will you be safe."

Pinnocchio replied rather questionly."And what if i refuse? I can simply give him my life some other day I mean heck if i join the cicus and make lots of money i can retire long and happy." The voice replied."That is the most idoitic thing I have ever heard, did i not just tell you can die at any given time and God in his mercy is giving you this oppertunity now and here to repent and be saved it may never come again, you may never get the chance to fully repent."

Pinnocchio replied."Well if i do die I can repent when I see him." the voice then replied urgently and sternly."That would be to late then you be given the ultimate penalty for your sins. " Pinnocchio replied."ugg, look let me think on this latter I mean i have my full life a head of me." The voice replied."oh you think so what happens if you drop dead here and now?" Pinnocchio replied."Please like i said i was just born today it wouldn't make sense to die now" However as soon as Pinnocchio took an step he fell lifeless on the ground.


The Moral of the story. "God is an good good father but he he is also an rightous judge,don't causally live your life as you do because this all you get."

Greetings Brother,
That was an awesome twist you created within this story. It seems you have a gift here within your imagination and writing.

I would like to encourage you to soak it in Prayer and think about creating your own stories that are inspired by God Thee Father.

Like I said, I believe you have a gift of writing and if this is indeed something The Father has placed in you, well Sir, there would be no limit to what God can do with your writings.
You may even end up writing some good quality children's books filled with The Morals and Truth of God.

Believe me, this world can use them.
Any way, I just wanted to Thank You for sharing your creativity with us and to encourage you to not give up!!
Blessings to you and your family
