There was a huge wheelhouse built on the platform of the sanctuary because the church was running an evening program for church and neighbourhood kids. The theme of the week long event had to do with ships and pirates.
One day the “captain” was talking to the children about God sightings. Referring to different things they had seen God do during the course of their adventure at sea, the captain then asked the children, “Why are ‘God sightings’ important?”
A little girl raised her hand and said, “Because they give us hope.”
Out of the mouths of babes!
May we never become so hardened in our hearts that we find no hope in someone else’s God sighting!
May remembering our own God sightings always give us hope.
May we always be watchful to see who needs the hope our God sightings will give.
“We will not hide them [God’s works] from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. [God sightings]For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children: That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born…that they might set their hope in God…” (Psalm 78:3-6)
