Author Ronald Rood visited a class of second-graders and gave a slide presentation of a Hawaiian volcano. The pictures showed molten lava pouring into the sea and steam rising a mile into the air. The scene was so graphic that the children could almost hear the roar. Rood then passed around a piece of lava for the youngsters to examine. After it was handled by two dozen hands, one little boy brought the rock back to the front. Carefully cradling it in his hand, he exclaimed with wide eyes, “Mr. Rood, it’s still warm!”

What an imagination. What if we could imagine the stories in the Bible like that little boy imagined the lava rock. The stories would come alive. The Bible characters were real people like you and me. Let’s ask God to make their experiences come alive to us, so that we can learn from their examples.

This is a prime example of how we should look at things thru the eyes of a child. We should-daily-be awed by the things God has created and by the principles that He has given us to live our lives by. I pray for a child-like reverence in my own walk.
