Max's conversation with God

“God, what is Your real name?”

“My real name is Max.”

“That’s my name. I won’t give You my name.”

“Then what name do you want Me to have?”

“I want You to have the name Water.”

“Water! That’s a fine name. From now on, if you can call Me by that name, I shall respond.”

“God, I'll tell You a secret. My mother has taught me that the other name of Water is Life.”

“Now My child, I'll tell you another secret. The other name of Life is God.”

“Can I tell my mother Your secret?”

“Certainly you can.”

“God, I really thank You for telling me a top secret.”
