Reprimand Should Not Be the First Reaction

A mother of a five-year-old girl was startled to find her going through a new Bible storybook and circling the word “God” wherever appeared. Stifling her first reaction to reprimand the child for defacing a book, she quietly asked, “Why are doing that?” The little girl’s matter-of-fact answer was, “So that I will know where to find God when I want Him.” (Bruce Howell - Sermon Central).
