What Will You Do When You See God? (Part 2)

“When I see God, he’ll make a rainbow for me,” says Ally, 5. “He’s gonna show me how to make one. He’s gonna sit down in the grass and eat an apple with me.” Ally’s answer is more than cute. It could be insightful as well. Who knows the entire capabilities of a resurrected body …

“When I see God, I will give him a big hug,” says Whitney. “Then I will go say ‘hi’ to all the people in Bible times. Then I will ask him everything I ask my parents that they can’t answer.” Whitney, I’m sure your parents will rejoice with you. “I will fall down on my …

What part of creation reminds you of God?

“My favorite thing that God created is blueberries. God is good for making them,” says Olivia, 6. I’ve never linked blueberries with the goodness of God, but why not? If you had mentioned blueberry pie a la mode, somehow the link would be clearer. “I think God created flowers so they could freshen the world …

What is the lesson of Gideon and his 300-man army?

“Gideon used fire because the electricity ran out. God said blow the horns and crash real big, and he would give them electricity,” says Weston, 4. I’m sure Gideon and his band of 300 would be surprised to know they solved Israel’s energy crisis in the late 11th century B.C. The problem in Gideon’s day, …

What can we learn from the walls of Jericho falling down?

“They (Joshua and the Israelites) marched around the Jericho walls for days,” says Meagan, 7. “On the seventh day, they blew their horns, and the walls came tumbling down, and they shouted. You can never keep God out of your house, even if you tried.” Unfortunately, Meagan, a lot of people try. “I think God …

What is the narrow gate of which Jesus spoke?

“God has a narrow gate so people won’t push and shove to get in,” says Allen, 10. “You have to wait your turn to get in,” adds Brittany, 7. When there’s a great sporting event, some fans sleep outside the ticket office in the cold to get a ticket. We may think that places in …
