How does your favorite animal remind you of God?

“A giraffe can kiss the clouds because it is long, and God is long,” says Tori, age 6. Well, the Psalmist wrote that “with an outstretched arm” God’s mercy endures forever. I suppose “outstretched” qualifies as long. custom writing essays “God created the horse so people could ride on it,” says Jacob, 7. “The horse …

Why did God forbid murder in the sixth commandment?

There are three reasons Chase, age 11, would never murder anyone: 1) “It is wrong to take a gift of God”; 2) “If you think about it, I don’t believe you would want someone to kill you”; and 3) “You don’t want to go ZZZZ in the electric chair.” Yes, life is a gift of …

How do the pure in heart see God?

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8). “This verse means people that go all out, not halfway, will see God,” says Matthew, age 9.
