Summer is cruising in! My mind pictures picnics in the park, playing in sand and cooling off in the water. I think of laying in the grass and gazing at the clouds. For me, summer says: ENJOY! God says that to us all the time.
Hundreds of years ago some wise Christians said the job of every Christian is to bring glory to God and enjoy Him forever! That is a pretty great job, isn’t it?!
God needs YOU to help people remember that. Children are very good at enjoying God. You can even think of that as your special job assignment from God. You do your job well by:
- being yourself
- looking for God in everything
- enjoying Him when you see Him
- and pointing Him out to others!
It is sort of like floating in the water. As long as you rest peacefully, you can gaze up into the heavens. If you panic or start splashing about, you stop floating and sink. When we live resting on Jesus, the Living Water and look up at God, the holy Father, He does great things through us.
That is a pretty wonderful job assignment, don’t you think? What is your favorite summer activity?
