God, Jesus and Peter Pan

My daughter was lost for words after a 'theological' discussion with her [nearly] four year old son. The conversation revolved around the subject of God’s ability to watch over all of us. It followed on from a prayer asking that God would watch over Liam and his little sister. At the end of the prayer Liam turned to his mother and said “I know someone else who watches over us.” Intrigued, my daughter asked the inevitable “Who?” She did not expect the reply that she got. “Peter Pan,” he said. Peter Pan watches over Neverland.” Now, the theology might have been a little out of kilter but Liam had got the right idea about God. He is with us always and sees us in our pain and joy. Why though, is it so easy to forget God in the midst of our joy and yet we acknowledge him with derogatory comments when things are not going well. I have to return to what I call ‘eyeball Christianity’. When my eyes are totally fixed on God they cannot be drawn away on fantasy flights with Peter Pan. When my eyes are totally fixed on God, it is then that I know for certain that ‘God is’ and there is no fear or doubt that can penetrate the wall of confidence in the power of God in my life.

Transferring the theme of your daughter's lesson to Peter Pan is definitely evidence of higher level thinking on Liam's part. Good for him - bibleguy64
