A young boy approached his slightly older sister with a question about God. “Susie, can anybody ever really see God?” “Of course not, silly,” came the response. “God is so far up in heaven that no one can see God.”
Sometime later the boy approached his mother with the same nagging question, “Mom, can anybody really see God?” More gently his mother answered, “No, not really. God is a spirit and dwells in our hearts, but we can never really see God.”
His mother’s answer was somewhat more satisfying, but still the boy wondered. Not long afterwards, the boy’s grandfather took him on a fishing trip, and the two had a great day together. As the day was winding down, the sun began to set with unusual splendor. The grandfather was enraptured by the beauty, and the grandson was aware of a deep peace and contentment etched upon his grandpa’s face.
“Grampa,” the boy began, a bit hesitatingly, “I wasn’t going to ask anyone else, but I wonder if you can tell me the answer to something I’ve been wondering about a long time. Can anybody ever really see God?”
The grandfather sat in thought for a few moments, then said simply, “Grandson, it’s getting so these days I can’t see anything else.”

As YOU get older and wiser, are YOU seeing God more and more in YOUR life?
GOD CAN SEE OUR HEARTS, AND IT IS ONLY WITH OUR HEARTS THAT WE CAN SEE GOD!
