The other day in the car, it went like this:
My oldest daughter was singing softly a new song from church….”My God is great-er…My God is great-er”
I looked up from driving and glanced in the rearview mirror. I was happy to hear my firstborn sing such a lovely song. It made me proud. It made me think: I MUST BE DOING A GOOD JOB.
A second little girl’s voice joined in the chorus. In sweet , clear lyrics, she echoed her older sister… “My God is greater…”
This went on for a minute or two. I was bursting with pride at my
And then in a swift moment, without ANY WARNING, the song of the younger become… “MY God is greater than YOURS…” and there was a competitive edge to her voice.
To which her sister responded…”No, MY God is GREATER than YOUR GOD!”
And then it downward spiraled into an all out WAR of who’s God was greater.
Yours or Mine.
P.S. At some point I should probably explain it’s THE SAME GOD, huh?
