Where’s the best place to start when you wanna get smart. Do you remember the do-re-mi song? It was sung in a movie called “The Sound of Music”. And it started out with, “let’s start at the very beginning…a very good place to start”. Wanna know where the very beginning is? Keep reading…
Where do you think you started? If you said inside your mom, you’re right. But how did you get there? It sure wasn’t by accident. God took part of your mom and part of your dad and made you. That means you really started in God’s mind. Wow…is that cool or what?! Once upon a time you were a thought in God’s mind. And He designed us so we could make more of us. It’s hard to even think about, isn’t it. But since we really got started in God’s mind, the first and best place to go to get smart is…God.
You may be wondering how you can go to God. It’s easy. In His word…the Bible. There’s a place in the Bible where it says when you respect God, you truly start to know more. And it says foolish people don’t want to know. You don’t wanna be one of them. Once you trust God and His word, in the Bible, you might find you’d like to know more…and more…and more. That makes you wise.
Would you like to be wise? Would you like to get smart and know a lot more about the world around you? Start with your living, loving Creator. He made you, and He knows what works best for you. When you learn something new about Him, share it with me. Here’s a rhyme to help you remember…
Get smart from the start.
Get God in your heart.
You’re a work of His art,
And you’re in His heart.
