05A THE GOD OF THE BIBLE
In a certain primary school the children had a period each day for drawing. They enjoyed it and entered into the program with enthusiasm. It gave them a chance for expression and gave the teacher a few minutes to relax.
Crayons, pencils, and paper were passed out, and the boys and girls were told they could draw whatever they wanted to draw. It could be a house, a horse, a train, a tree, a person, a landscape. They were only in standard one, and the teacher did not expect any masterpieces.
Susan was curious to see what Ellen was drawing. Peeking over here little friend's shoulder, she whispered, "What are you drawing?"
With the air of and experienced artist, the little lady answered, "I'm drawing a picture of God."
Susan thought a minute. Then with a positiveness that was supposed to express superior wisdom, she said, "You can't draw a picture of God. Nobody knows what God looks like."
Ellen was not going to be discouraged. She went on drawing, pausing just long enough to answer, with real seriousness, "They'll know when I get through."
I wish we might have seen the finished drawing.
In every human heart is an inner, heaven-born desire to know what God is like. All want to know: Who is God? Where is God? What does He look like? When did He begin? Can we know Him? Everyone has asked these questions. Can the answers be found?
