My son, the philosopher

Every night before we put baby boy to bed, we brush teeth, read a book or two, and try to wind down before eventually turning off the lights and putting him into bed. One of the books we've been reading lately is called "Baby's First Bible". He got this as a gift when he was first born and we dug it out recently. It's pretty cool - it condenses the bible down into about 9 different stories!

The first story in the book is about Genesis and everything that God made, then it goes on to the next story about Moses being found in a basket as a baby, David in the Lion's den, baby Jesus being born, Jesus walking on water, and then Jesus rising from the grave. That's about all that's important in the bible, right?!

So, the other night, when we opened the book, baby boy says, "What made God?" (he mistakenly (?) switched the words "made" and "God")

We didn't have an answer for him.

Easy answer, though. The human mind. But, you can tell him that uncle scott did.

Tell him God just *is*. Eternal, he's always existed.

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING, thou art God. (Psalms 90:2).

Kids don't have a problem with that. Adults do. :P
