DO YOU KNOW WHAT GOD LOOKS LIKE?

IN MRS. EDWARDS’ SECOND GRADE CLASS, IT WAS TIME FOR ART. SHE TOLD HER STUDENTS THEY COULD DRAW ANYONE THEY WANTED….BUT THE PICTURE HAD TO BE THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON TO THEM. CRAYONS AND KRAFT PAPER FILLED THE TOPS OF EACH LITTLE DESK. AS THE STUDENTS SET OUT TO DRAW A PICTURE OF THEIR MOST IMPORTANT PERSON, MRS. EDWARDS TOURED THEIR DESKS. EACH CHILD WAS HARD AT WORK. SHE WOULD STOP AND ASK ABOUT THE PICTURES THAT WERE BEING CREATED. WHEN SHE CAME TO SHANNON’S DESK, SHE ASKED WHOSE PICTURE SHE WAS DRAWING. SHANNON NEVER LOOKED UP AND SOFTLY REPLIED “GOD”. MRS. EDWARDS HAD HEARD OTHER STUDENTS REPLY, ‘MY MOTHER’, ‘MY DAD’, ‘GRAMMA’ AND SUCH…BUT NO ONE HAD EVER TOLD HER “GOD”! SHE KNELT DOWN BESIDE SHANNON AND SAID, “THAT MUST BE VERY DIFFICULT TO DRAW, SINCE NO ONE KNOWS WHAT GOD LOOKS LIKE.” AGAIN NEVER LOOKING UP, SHANNON WHISPERED “THEY WILL WHEN I FINISH MY PICTURE!” SO, DO YOU KNOW WHAT GOD LOOKS LIKE? SOMETIMES WE CAN STOP AND SEE MORE CLEARLY THRU THE EYES OF A CHILD…A CHILD WITH THE INNOCENSE OF A LITTLE GIRL LIKE SHANNON. “BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART, FOR THEY WILL SEE GOD.” MATTHEW 5:8...
