Through the Eyes of a Child
Someone evidently asked a Sunday School class to write letters to God. And then someone else put some of their answers into a video on GodTube. Warning: This pegs the cute-o-meter pretty hard!
Boy, these kids sure have goofy ideas about how God works, right? I couldn't help but think that God thinks the same thing whenever we wax elloquwent with our best reason explanations of things like the Trinity, free-will vs sovereignity and where Cain got his wife. "My kids sure have goofy ideas about the way We do things." God speaks to us in the Bible in "baby talk" because that is all we can understand. Oh, we must do our best work in trying to understand what the Bible says, but please don't think that God is somehow limited to our limited understanding of what He tells us! Randy Harris once said, "Don't tell God what He can't do; it annoys Him." We would do well to sing with David the song of ascents in Psalm 131--
My heart is not proud, O Lord, my eyes are not haughty;.....I do not concern myself with great matters..........or things too wonderful for me.But I have stilled and quieted my soul;
.....like a weaned child with its mother,
..........like a weaned child is my soul within me.
O Israel, put your hope in the Lord both now and forevermore.
