A little over a month ago I was at the house and my wife and I were sitting in the living room watching tv. Our son was sitting in the room with us playing.
Our son gets up an heads back to his room. I think he is going back to get more toys to play with.
A while goes by…
So I get up and tell my wife I am going to check on our son and see what he is up to. So I head back to the room to see what he is doing.
I creep back there to just get a peak of what he is doing. He is sitting down looking through one of his picture Bibles. I softly, trying not to startle him, ask him what he is doing. His response puts new meaning to “faith like a child.”
His response to me was…
“I am looking for God.”
Wow. I am sitting watching a meaningless tv show and my son, who is three, is looking for God. It really made me look at myself and ask myself when the last time I looked for God.
He is all around us if we just take the time to look. That night I saw God in the loving head of a three year old. I cannot be more happy that the three year old is my son.
When is the last time you looked or God? Or seen His acts around you?
