As adults, we understand that God is spirit (John 4:24). However, children are curious and have many questions about God and why they can’t see Him. My grandson was one such curious child. He genuinely wanted to connect with God. His curiosity spoke to me and inspired me to write Mama, I Want to See God. During my lifetime, I have strived to model God’s love. When we, as adults exhibit our love for God and for one another, children will see God in us. And, through their continued hunger for knowing God and loving Him, they will in turn see God in themselves.
Mama, I Want to See God
“No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us.” 1 John 4:12 (New International Version)”
