Faith or Pure Imagination
The Bible in the following verse describes faith as:
Atheists, and I tried to be one for almost twenty years in the middle of my life, think of God as a child’s imaginary friend. Just because you cannot see someone or something does not mean it is not real. The writer of the above Bible verse went on to say two verses later that God imagined all there is and spoke it into existence. We are children of the Divine and this gift of faith or imagination is our birthright.
Ole Shakespeare wrote:
“There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horacio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
Once to illustrate a point, Jesus took a child and placed the child in front of a group of people and said, “You must become as a little child to enter the kingdom of heaven.” Children have many characteristics some noble and some not so noble yet the context of Jesus words make plain that he was referring to the faith or imagination of children.
Paul in his letter to the church at Philippi writes “I can do all things…” Snoopy say Amen to that in his book, “You can be anything!”
Your friend and fellow traveler,
You Can Be Anything!
