A wicked man once tried to trap a young boy by asking him questions about God. First of all, he asked him, "Can you tell me where God is?"
The young boy replied, "You tell me where He isn't."
Then he asked, "Is your God a big God?"
"Is He a little God?"
"How can He be both big and little at the same time?"
The young boy gave a beautiful answer. "He is so big that the Heavens do not hold Him and yet He is so small that He can fit right inside my heart."
That boy knew very well what we mean when we say that God is everywhere. "He is so big that the heavens do not hold Him and yet He is small enough to fit right inside my Heart."
There are two things that we should always remember. First, that God is always thinking of us: and, then, that we should always try to think of Him.
God is always thinking of us; in fact, He thinks more about us than we do ourselves. He thinks more about us than our mothers do. Anytime we want to remember how much God loves us, we have just to think of our mothers' love and remember that God loves us more than they do. He numbers every hair on our heads. He counts every winking of our eyelids. He helps us digest our breakfast. If it were not for Him, the blood would stop flowing in our veins and our heart would stop beating. At every moment, no matter where we are, God is thinking of us.
Wherever we go, then, we should always try to think of Him. He should not be one who stands in the midst of us whom we do not know. If we always kept in our minds the thought that God sees us, we would never sin.
