John Henry came home from school last week and told me, “people who don’t love God don’t know Him.” I’m pretty sure 1 John 4:8 is one of his memory verses. I thought it would be fun to interview my children on what they know about God. Here are their answers. The spelling and punctuation are courtesy of mom. Grammar and content are courtesy of a 6 year old and 4 year old.
That He is our Father.
He sent His son Jesus to earth.
And, He made us. He made Brew, all these animals. The seventh day He rest.
I pray to talk to Him. We pray to Him anytime we want to.
We praise Him, and we celebrate His birthday.
Whenever you look up, you’re looking at Him.
He died on a cross to save our sins, and He loves us.
When God doesn’t know us or someone doesn’t know God, we have to pray to God so He’ll talk to us.
God praise us to bless our hearts to breathe.
God is in our hearts so He can hear us, ‘cause He’s so high when we pray.
He lives in heaven ‘cause heaven’s His favorite place to live.
He does lots of good stuff.
And, if we be bad we tell the truth.
And, He makes us by eating food to grow. If we don’t have food in our tummy, we die and go to heaven.
God bless us with rats to hold and cats to hold. Rats are like mouse. Rats are tiny, and they scratch.
And, there ya go.
What do you know about God?

It is always great to see from a kid’s eyes. Good stuff!
Haha, I love the part about rats and cats. Rats are tiny and they scratch. So true, so true.
I now know that I should praise him for every heartbeat and for every breathe…..by Pastor Anna
This just makes me smile. I can just picture you talking to both of them and how serious they are about their answers. I love it. That was wonderful.
Michael says that
He loves us and Cares about us –always
He is my Father
He protects us
He sacrifices His only son for us
we talk to him by praying
We can talk to Him any time
He wants us to be good and to be great
He wants us to be a Christian and believe in His Son
God can help us every way
This will be a long list if I have to tell you EVERYTHING about God.
