The story is told of a child on her way home from church with her mom when she turned to her mother and said, “Mommy, the preacher’s sermon this morning confused me.”
“Oh? Why is that?” she asked.
The little girl responded, “Well, the preacher said that God is bigger than we are. Is that true?”
“Yes, He is,” her mom replied.
“And he also said that God lives in us. Is that also true, Mommy?” Again, her mother answered yes.
“Well,” said the little girl, “if God is bigger than us and He lives in us, shouldn’t He show through?”
