The Thinker is growing up. It's difficult to believe we're wrapping up his fourth grade year. He recently finished a devotional book, Starting Strong, and we were discussing it. I asked him if he enjoyed it and if he saw any benefits of a written response to the Bible.
"Yeah, Mom. It got me closer up, you know?"
"How's that?" I asked.
"Well, I thought I knew everything about Naaman, see? And then I discovered that God used a servant girl to help him, and that was surprising. God uses different things. It's good because it made me really look at the Bible and see new things. I got closer to it."
My prayer for him, for you, for me today, is that we sidle up to the Word, look a little more intently, respond a little more thoughtfully and make one more connection to God than we've done before. Get closer to His Word. Get closer to Him.
Get closer up.
