I have issues and I acknowledge that. My 6 year old daughter has to memorize and contemplate on 2 different verses each week for school. With my new view or paradigm of how I see God and my identity I cringe alot when I hear how God is often portrayed.
Her verse this week was Psalms103:11 this week.
New International Version
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
I was going over it with Mo and I asked her what it meant to her… She asked why she should fear God. I told her that was a bad word (not a four letter bad word). Told her let’s replace the word fear with respect or love. She said “oh, I get it.” I walked out of the room and came back about ten minutes later. While I was gone she composed a song on her pad.
The innocence of a little child and the way they can relate blows me away. Children are not bogged down by traditions, bad teaching, works, or basic garbage. To return so easily our original identity and redeemed innocence is amazing.
How do you see God? How do you see Jesus? Riddle me this…
