Thanks for the Reminder

Have you ever listened to young children talk about the things of God?  Their perspective almost borders The Divine!  
My son Joel speaks the most insightful words sometimes.  His brother Micah, did the same at a very young age.  For instance, last night, I sent Joel up at 8 o’clock to take a shower and go to bed.  That is his regular routine on school nights.  I finally climbed the stairs at 9:30 to go to bed myself.  It was a little early, but the day had been stressful.  As I passed his room, I noticed he was still awake.  We said our “I love you! ‘s” and our bed time prayers, yet once again, and I stumbled into my room and fell into bed exhausted, ready to sleep.  Just as I was dozing off, I heard him say:
“Hey mom! …People who have everything, but don’t have God, really have nothing.  And people who have nothing, but do have God…well they are the ones that really have EVERYTHING!”
PROFOUND!  What insight!  You and I know this to be true, be we somehow forget because of all the distractions a grown up life entails.
We said our “I love you! ‘s” and “Goodnight’s” once again and it got quiet.  Then I said… “Hey Joe…thanks for the reminder!”
Do YOU have God?  If so, no matter how hard things may be in your life…YOU HAVE EVERYTHINGYOU NEED!  Remember that!
