1st Writes is participating in the 2013 April A to Z Blogging Challenge.
This year our theme is "Attributes of God from A to Z".
Join us each day as we explore
the characteristics of our awesome God!
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
1 Timothy 1:17
"What does God look like?" my four-year-old daughter asked.
"Well, He looks like us," I replied, thinking of how we were made in His image.
"Like a girl?" she wondered.
"Well, no. Like a human," I tried to clarify.
"I don't get it," she said.
I knew she wasn't 'getting' it, but wasn't sure how to explain. I tried my best: "Well, no one has ever seen God. He's a spirit."
"Like a ghost?"
"No! He's not like a ghost. He's...everywhere - in everyone and everything. We just can't see Him."
"Oh, you mean He's inbisible."
"Yes. That's right - He's invisible."
"Why didn't you just say so in the first place, you silly goose?"
