Little Leroy came into the kitchen where his mother was making dinner. His
birthday was coming up and he thought this was a good time to tell his
mother what he wanted. "Mom, I want a bike for my birthday."

Little Leroy was a bit of a troublemaker. He had gotten into trouble at
school and at home. Leroy’s mother asked him if he thought he deserved to
get a bike for his birthday. Little Leroy, of course, thought he did.

Leroy's mother, being a Christian woman, wanted Leroy to reflect on his
behavior over the last year. "Go to your room, Leroy, and think about how
you have behaved this year. Then write a letter to God and tell him why you
deserve a bike for your birthday."
Little Leroy stomped up the steps to his room and sat down to write God a letter.

Letter 1

Dear God,

I have been a very good boy this year and I would
like a bike for my birthday. I want a red one.
Your friend,
Leroy

Leroy knew that this wasn't true. He had not been a
very good boy this year, so he tore up the letter and
started over.

Letter 2

Dear God,
This is your friend Leroy. I have been a good boy
this year and I would like a red bike for my birthday.
Thank you.
Your friend,
Leroy

Leroy knew that this wasn't true either. So he tore
up the letter and started again.

Letter 3

Dear God,
I have been an "OK" boy this year. I still would
really like a bike for my birthday.
Leroy

Leroy knew he could not send this letter to God
either. So, Leroy wrote a fourth letter.

Letter 4

God, I know I haven't been a good boy this year. I
am very sorry. I will be a good boy if you just send
me a bike for my birthday. PLEASE!!!
Thank you,
Leroy

Leroy knew, even if it were true, this letter was
not going to get him a bike.
Now, Leroy was very upset. He went downstairs and
told his Mom that he wanted to go to church.
Leroy's mother thought her plan had worked, as
Leroy looked very sad. "Just be home in time for
dinner," Leroy's mother told him.

Leroy walked down the street to the church on the
corner. Little Leroy went into the church and up to
the altar. He looked around to see if anyone was
there. Leroy bent down and picked up a statue of
the Virgin Mary. He slipped it under his shirt and
ran out of the church, down the street, into
the house, and up to his room. He shut the door to
his room and sat down with a piece of paper and a
pen. Leroy began to write his letter to God.

Letter 5

God,

I'VE GOT YOUR MAMA. IF YOU WANT TO SEE HER AGAIN,
SEND THE BIKE!

Signed,

YOU KNOW WHO
