He is Worthy of our Praise

UNITED STATES MAP

A father wanted to read a magazine but was being bothered by His little girl, Shelby. She wanted to know what the United States looked Like.

Finally, he tore a sheet out of his new magazine on which was Printed the map of the country. Tearing it into small pieces, he gave it To Shelby and said, "Go into the other room and see if you can put this Together. This will show you our whole country today."

After a few minutes, Shelby returned and handed him the map, Correctly fitted and taped together.

The father was surprised and asked How she had finished so quickly. "Oh," she said, "on the other side of the Paper is a picture of Jesus. When I got all of Jesus back where He Belonged, then our country just came together."

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength" (Matthew 22:37-38, Mark 12:30)

Do you love Jesus with all your heart? Do you love Jesus with all your soul? Do you love Jesus with all your mind? Do you love Jesus with all your strength?

We are commanded to love Him that much! He is worthy of my Praise!

Lori, you put this story into the right setting and message for us. Thank you.
Thanks too for yesterday's post, I left a comment there just now. That wasn't an easy one to write, was it?
It turned out very nice, there was a balance for the man and the woman in there, I feel the man has must also be right with God's commands [even if he isn't a believer] in treatment of, and love for, his wife for there to be God blessed sex.

What a beautiful and inspiring story...and out of the mouth of an innocent child.
