Seeing Through God’s Lens
Q&A: Sarah and Lilly
Sarah: What does it mean that God is Creator?
Lilly: I think people say something is theirs, but it really is God’s (because He made it).
Sarah: I like that! Because sometimes we have questions about who created this world and who the Creator is. And God wants us to bring our questions to Him. Have you ever had a question about God as Creator or about creation?
Lilly: Yes. How was God there before everything else?
Sarah: Good one! He was self-created. I know that can be something that’s hard to think about. But sometimes there are things we can’t see that we can still believe because we can trust God and God’s Word (The Bible) to be true. In Genesis and in John chapter 1, it talks about God who was there from the beginning.
Sarah: So what do you like about Gods creation?
Lilly: I like science because I can look at germs under my microscope.
Sarah: That’s awesome! Have you ever found something on a walk and put it under your microscope?
Lilly: A pine cone and I liked it because it looked sparkly.
Sarah: Wow! How do you feel looking at God’s creation?
Lilly: Happy! Because it is beautiful.
Sarah: How can our readers do more exploring at home?
Lilly: Rummage through your house and find things and make things out of them.
Sarah: Great ideas. As we finish up today, what’s a question you would like to ask our readers on this topic?
Lilly: Do you like to explore God’s creation?
