A Childs Explanation of God…..

Isaiah 64:8 “But now, O Lord, You are the Father; we are the clay,
and You are the potter; And all we are the work of Your hand.”

This was written by an 8 year old for his third grade homework assignment. The assignment was to explain God. Wonder if any of us could do as well???


One of God’s main jobs is making people. He makes them to replace
the ones that die, so there will be enough people to take care of
things on earth.

He doesn’t make grown-ups, just babies. I think because they are
smaller and easier to make. That way He doesn’t have to take up
His valuable time teaching them to talk and walk. He can just leave
that to mothers and fathers.

God’s second most important job is listening to prayers. An
awful lot of this goes on, since some people, like preachers and things,
pray at times beside bedtime. God doesn’t have time to listen to the
radio or TV because of this. Because He hears everything, there must
be a terrible lot of noise in His ears, unless He has thought of a way
to turn it off.

God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere,
which keeps Him pretty busy. So you shouldn’t go wasting His time
by going over your mom and dad’s head asking for something they
said you couldn’t have.

Some people don’t believe in God. I don’t think there
are any in Chula Vista. At least there aren’t any who come to our

Jesus is God’s Son. He used to do all the hard work like walking
on water and performing miracles and trying to teach the people
who didn’t want to learn about God. They finally go tired of Him
preaching to them and they crucified Him. But He was good and
kind, like His Father and He told His Father that they didn’t
know what they were doing and to forgive them and God said O.K.

His Dad (God) appreciated everything that He had done and all
His hard work on earth so He told Him He didn’t have to go out on the
road anymore. He could stay in heaven. So He did. And now He
helps His Dad out by listening to prayers and seeing things which
are important for God to take care of and which ones He can take
care of.

You can pray anytime you want and they are sure to help you
because they got it worked out so one of them is on duty all the
time. You should always go to church on Sunday because it makes
God happy, and if there’s anybody you want to make happy, it’s
God. Don’t skip church to do something you think will be more fun
like going to the beach. This is wrong. And besides the sun
doesn’t come out at the beach until noon anyway.

If you don’t believe in God, you will be very lonely, because
your parents can’t go everywhere with you, like to camp, but God
can. It is good to know He’s around you when you’re scared in the
dark or when you can’t swim and you get thrown into real deep
water by big kids.

But…you shouldn’t just always think of what God can do for
you. I figure God put me here and He can take me back anytime He
pleases. And that’s why I believe in God
