When I say that believing in nothing leads to nowhere, do you know what I mean? I’m talking about how we all got here. Some adults say everything in the whole universe came from nothing. They say once upon a time there was nothing but a tiny dot. And the tiny dot exploded. Then everything we know about came from that. To say that everything came from nothing is silly. It’s a fairy tale just like magical toys that talk. Or little boys and girls who fly. Or talking elephants. Or creatures that are part human and part horse. Those can be fun stories. But it’s good to remember they’re make-believe.
There are adults who’ll tell you there’s no such thing as God. That’s just as silly and foolish as saying everything came from nothing. Even worse, it’s sad. Because people who say that their whole lives will spend forever in a place all by themselves. We need to show those people how much God loves them, too. You can do that by learning all you can about God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit. That way, when somebody says there’s no such thing as God, you can show them that’s not true.
Ask your mom or your dad or someone who knows about God to tell you all about Him. Show how much you wanna know Him better. Find out about the things Jesus did while He was here on earth. And what He plans to do when He comes back. The more you discover, the more you’ll grow in God’s love. There isn’t a better thing in the whole world. Trust me, I know. I’m just like you. I started learning about Jesus before I even went to school. My Grandmother showed me how much He loves me. And she told me how I can live with Him forever in Heaven. But even though I found that out when I was still young, I had to keep learning more. And guess what…?
…I’m still learning. Everyone who loves God will get to live with Him forever. And we’ll never stop learning about how loving and wonderful He is. We’ll discover how believing in Him makes us healthy and happy. That’s sure better than believing in nothing. Don’t you think so? Here’s a rhyme to help you remember to believe and trust in your Creator…
Believing in nothing is no good.
It’s better when something’s understood
‘Cause nothing didn’t make you…and nothing doesn’t love you…
Only your Creator ever could.
