But as it is written, “Things which an eye didn’t see, and an ear didn’t hear, which didn’t enter into the heart of man, these God has prepared for those who love him.”
1 Corinthians 2:9
I’ve spent nearly 30 years teaching and mentoring tweens, teens, and young adults.
I cannot even begin to put a number on the times I’ve taught a lesson, given a devotion, counseled, mentored, prayed with, prayed for, and just hung out with “my kids.”
Throughout the years, I’ve often told them they can ask me anything and that I will give them the most honest and Biblical answer I possibly can. Well, …almost anything.
There are a few questions I don’t ‘allow’ kids to ask me. How did God come into existence? What does it feel like to die? What is heaven going to be like? And a few others similar to those. I don’t allow kids to ask these questions because they cannot be answered. What’s more, it doesn’t matter. We don’t need to know these things. We just need to believe God is the God of truth, because if we believe that, everything else will fall neatly into place.
Don’t worry about things you cannot know or change. Focus on what you can know—Jesus as your personal LORD and Savior.
You are Holy and I put my full trust in You.
In the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
