What’s your favorite summertime treat? Ice cream? Watermelon? Strawberry shortcake?
How about s’mores? You know what s’mores are, right? Just take two graham crackers, a toasted marshmallow, your favorite chocolate and smoosh it all together into a yummy sandwich. It tastes so good, you’ll want s’more!
The Bible says that God is kind of like that. Psalm 34:8 says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” Once you taste God’s goodness, it will leave you wanting more!
You may hear people say all kinds things about God. Some of those might be true, but others might be wrong. That’s why the best way to discover what God’s like is to get to know Him yourself. Taste and see!
Once you get a taste of God’s goodness, you’ll want more of Him in your life. You can get your first taste of God by reading the Bible and praying.
Here are a few Bible verses to get you started. Check out Psalm 136:1, Psalm 145:9, and Psalm 23:1-4. Think about what those tell you about what God is like.
Next you can pray. Prayer is just talking to God. You don’t need any special words. You can talk to God anytime, anywhere about anything. Tell God what you love about Him, thank for Him for the good things in your life and ask Him for help with all your problems and worries. He is a good God who wants to help!
Finally think about all the things you love about summer: things like playing outside, chasing fireflies, splashing in the pool and eating s’mores. The God who made all of that stuff and made us to enjoy it, wants to be your friend!
