Sharing from his heart

Saturday morning, while we were still on vacation Randy and I lay in bed listening to Seth and Cole talk with the workers who were cutting the grass outside our bungalo with hedge clippers. It went something like this.

Seth – So, you know the sun, azanao ("you understand?" in Malagasy)...The sun is like a big ball of fire.  God made that.  Like, we couldn't do that, just say “cement” and have cement appear. But God made the whole universe. You see 250 years ago there were people who disobeyed God, azanao? So Adam and Eve had to work extra hard because they had sinned. We all have sin. But God loves us so much that He sent Jesus to come. Azanao Jesus? He could have gotten off the cross but He didn't because He loved us.  So all we have to do is believe in Jesus and we can be with God forever. Azanao?

Now, this man whom Seth was talking to understood some English and he was very patiently listening to Seth. Seth and Cole then began singing “Jesus, You're my firm foundation” and “My God is more than enough” for the workers. Too cute.  Amazing how God can use such little people with their amazing faith like a child. May I learn from them.

  1. Meg, Could we talk about arranging some marriages? I would be so blessed to have such godly boys for son in laws:) Although I guess our lives and marriages speak to the fact that God will provide just the right individuals for our children. But maybe when you get home we could at least set up some play dates...
