What Does God Like?

 

Lee and Larry loved their sixth birthday party. Even though they were twins, Mommy and Daddy always made sure they each had a special time. And with their birthdays coming in December, Mommy and Daddy also always made sure their birthdays were special even though Christmas was right around the corner. The party was so fun with a clown and cake and songs and wonderful presents from their friends and grandparents and uncle and aunts. It went by so fast but before they knew it, everyone had gone home and it was time to clean up and get ready for bed.

Evening family devotions were one of the most important parts of Lee and Larry’s day. Daddy read part of the story of Jesus coming at Christmas which is where he read every year during December so they would know the real reason for Christmas, to celebrate the birth of Jesus. At the end of it, Lee asked, “Daddy, did Jesus get a birthday party every year with presents and a clown too?”

Everybody laughed trying to imagine what kind of birthday party Mary and Joseph gave for Jesus when He was six. Larry wondered, “I bet he liked the same kind of toys we like.”

“Well, what does God like?” Lee added. “I mean, we like cookies and cartoons and toys, but what kind of things are fun for God?” It was a question that for a minute Mommy and Daddy had to think about.

“I know!” Said Larry. “I bet he likes angels because he has them around all the time. Maybe he and the angels play family games like we do sometimes. Maybe they play Monopoly.” This made Mommy laugh really hard.

“Or maybe he likes bowling.” Lee continued. “I heard someone say that when you hear thunder, that means that God is bowling in heaven. I bet he is really good at it.”

“I bet he is PERFECT at it!” Laughed Larry.

“Well boys,” Mommy finally said after they had come up with lots of silly ideas of what God did for fun, “What God really likes is when people love each other and take care of each other like we do in our family.” That made sense to Lee and Larry so Lee hugged Mommy and Larry hugged daddy to just make God happy.

“You know what Pastor Johansson told us on Sunday is that God really likes worship.” Daddy added.

“You mean like when we sing praise songs in Church?” Larry asked and daddy nodded. “Well I can make up a worship song.” So Larry jumped to his feet and began to make up a song to a very bad tune. “Jesus is so cool. Its fun being with God. He is the funniest God anyone could have.” Larry sang very badly so Lee had put his hands over his ears.

“Singing worship songs is good but that’s not the only way to worship.” Daddy said, maybe to make Larry stop singing. “There are lots of ways to worship.”

‘LIKE WHAT DADDY, TELL US, TELL US.” Both boys jumped up and down wanting to know how to make God happy.
