Value: God’s Nature
April and her friends commonly fulfilled at the ice cream shop after school to chat and hang out and have a good time. Their parents didn’t mind since the ice cream shop is near the primary school and they could pick them up there. Today they were all thrilled about the conversation they had in history class when the educator was discussing the presidents of the nation. After they had their lecture and video the teacher had actually a game called "If I were head of state" where everybody said exactly what they would alter if they got a chance to be head of state.
"Well that was an enjoyable game all right." April stated as she moved into the booth at the ice cream store after school. "However if I were president, I would invest all my time on stopping wars.".
"Not me." Ginger interrupted. "In fact, I would need more power than just a head of state has to get exactly what I desire. I would need to be God. Yeah, that’s a better game. What would you do if you were God? I understand exactly what I would do. I would ensure there was never ever any even more mosquitoes. Ewww I hate those things." She chuckled.
"Well if I were God, I would eliminate all the governments and have actually one government run by me." Susanna stated looking off into space. "And if anybody didn’t obey, I would just erase their country. That would put an end to all the wars and that stuff.".
Simply then, April’s little brother Stevie walked in which implied their mom had dropped him off and would be back shortly to take April and Stevie house. Stevie was 7 years old. He took a seat and paid attention to the game.
"I think if I were God, considering that I would have the power to do anything at all, I would first stop all the illness and advancing years and bad storms and earthquakes so individuals all over the world wouldn’t suffer so much." Added Kimberly who constantly had a soft heart for suffering people.
"Well I have no idea. It seems to me that if everyone was a believer, we wouldn’t have so much difficulty with sin so possibly if I were God, I would just require everyone to be a follower then there would just be one world religion." April said fantasizing about how that would be.
"Don’t you think God would do that if he could, April?" Ginger stated.
"But God is all effective, I ask yourself why he endures lost people and simply doesn’t wipe them off the face of the earth in one wave of His hand and end all the sin and eliminating and awful sins people do." If the answers to these questions had actually been covered in Sunday school, April responded knowing she was unsure of what she was chatting about and trying to keep in mind.
"Well my uncle was lost till he received Christ last month. If God had wiped all the lost people before that, he would have gone to hell however now he is visiting paradise so I am glad God didn’t do that and maybe that is why he is waiting." Ginger stated mentally because she liked her uncle and all of her family.
"Well if God had forced your uncle to get conserved before he wiped out the rest, then he would not have gone to Hell." Susanna added.
"I am delighted God didn’t require me to obtain saved. When I offered my heart to him, I wanted to. It might be like when mother and father forces you to cleanse your room if he forced us. You do it however you resent them for pushing you around. I do not think God pushes people around." Ginger stated.
"Well he might if he wished to." April reminded everyone.
"You know exactly what I think God would do if he was God?" Because of how he stated that, Stevie all of a sudden interrupted and everybody chuckled. "I think he wouldn’t be all bossy and make anything change but I think he would boil down from paradise and become a human so he can save the lost people due to the fact that he created them to be his household and I know daddy and mommy would do anything to save us if April or I were lost. They would even provide their lives to conserve ours.".
Everyone stopped speaking and just lookinged at Stevie. He might not have actually even known it but he hit on exactly what God would do to save his children.
"Not only is that what God would do Stevie," stated Kimberly, ’that’s exactly what he did do.".
"What do you suggest? I was just conforming." The little boy questioned.
"She implies that is exactly what God did, when he came down as Jesus. He provided up His throne and of His powers and all of His kingship to become a poor human child. Then he expanded up right here and became a teacher to teach us about Heaven. Then he went through every little thing we go with so we know he comprehends everything. Then he let individuals eliminate him so we can be h is household and then he increased once again to take us to paradise." Kimberly continued.
"Wow, I feel silly for thinking He would do anything else. I should have understood that." Ginger stated softly and humbly.
"Me too." Susanna included looking down at her ice cream. "Stevie how did you understand all that?".
"Well," Stevie said not understanding he had said anything smart at all. "I do pay attention in church and Sunday school.".
"Well girls," April laughed. "Seems like we need to do less flirting and gossiping and laughing in Sunday school and do some listening.".
"Yeah April." Susanna agreed. "Then perhaps we will not find ourselves being appeared by a 7 year old about how God truly thinks and feels about things.
April and Stevie’s mom came and they went house to think about the discussion but Stevie walked out sensation about 7 foot tall since he learned something about God and it was.
