My youngest son when he had just turned four approached me one morning with a most solemn look on his face.
“Daddy,” he said looking up at me. “Can I sit next to you?”
“Of course, honey,” I answered, my heart jumping with joy at the thought of my little boy wanting to be with me. He climbed up and snuggled close to me and then sat still for a moment holding his little toes. He was clearly deep in thought.
“Daddy,” said he, breaking the stillness.
“Yes?” I returned.
“God can play ‘tag’ really good, can’t He?” he asked with utmost seriousness in his expression and tone.
“What do you mean, sweetheart?” I asked, looking into his big eyes.
“If you run away, God can catch you really easy, can’t He?” he explained.
“Hmm,” I said.
“And He can play ‘hide-and-seek’ really good ‘cuz He can see you anywhere you hide, right?”
“Umm,” I said.
“Maybe God could play ‘Freeze Tag’ sometime with us,” he mused thoughtfully rocking back and forth beside me.
“Uh,” I said.
How to respond? I chuckled on the inside, but realized immediately both the important lesson of which God was reminding me and of the profound nugget of spiritual insight that He seemed to be already sharing with this little one.
