Why?

You know how kids like to ask “why?” a lot? Sometimes they do it just to try and get on other peoples nerves.

Example:

Kid: “Why is the sky blue?”

Adult: “That’s just how it is.”

Kid: “Why?”

Adult: “Because it is.”

Kid: “Why?”

Adult: “Don’t ask why.”

Kid: “Why?”

Adult: “Because I said so.”

Kid: “Why?”

Adult: “Because it’s annoying.”

Kid: “Why?”

Adult: “Because it just is.”

Kid: “Why?”

Adult: “…”

 

So today two of the fourth-grade girls were doing this to me. However, this one was a bit interesting.

Kids: “Do you have a girlfriend?”

Me: “No.”

Kids: “Why?”

Me: “Because God doesn’t want me to.”

Kids: “Why?”

Me: “Because God wants me to focus on Him right now.”

Kids: “Why?”

Me: “Because He has a lot of work for me to do right now and He’s growing me and teaching me new things.”

Kids: “Why?”

Me: “So I can better serve Him.”

Kids: “Why?”

Me: “Because God saved me and now I seek to serve Him.”

Kids: “Why?”

Me: “Because He loves me, and He said that those who love Him will obey his commands, and one of his commands is to serve Him.”

Kids: “Why?”

Me: “So that other people who don’t know about Jesus can learn about Him.”

Kids: “Why?”

Me: “So that they can be saved and go to heaven.”

Kids: “Why?”

Me: “Because God loves us so much he gave his only Son to die for us, so that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”

Kids: “Why?”

Me: “Because he loves us.”

Kids: “Why?”

Me: “I don’t know. He just does.”

I’d say it went rather well. A good Bible lesson came out of it. This is just an example of how God gives us so many opportunities to share our faith with those we serve.
