Some things we are taught in Sunday school aren't necessarily so. For example, children are often taught that God needs them because their hands are the only hands God has and their feet are the only feet God has. That's complete baloney and, theologically, it doesn't make any sense. God wants all of us to obey Him, but He doesn't need any of us. If God had any needs or disabilities, He would not be God.
