40 DAYS – Time with God – Day 10
In God’s Image
by Pat Baxter
Some years back, my Korean friend’s four-and-a-half year-old daughter, Tjaehe, sat on my knee and asked me to draw a picture of God. I was taken aback. ‘Draw God … where do I start?’ I turned the question back to Tjaehe. I asked her to remember all the stories of God that she has heard and then tell me what she imagines God to look like. She thought for a while and then drew her mother and father sitting down with her on their knees and she was holding her baby brother in her arms. She captured the essence of God; a God whose knee she could climb on and ask questions; a God who would comfort her and explain things that puzzle her.
