why are we here

I asked 10 year olds yesterday to write journal responses to the question, “Why are we here?”  True to our time, most started with the obvious — its time for school, mom made me come, to learn all we can and prepare for life, etc.  So I asked why they think we are here on this planet.

A young Sunday School girl, “I was taught that we are here to worship God.”

A young Muslim boy, “I think we are like God’s little experiment!  he put us all here and now he is just watching to see how it all turns out.”

A young blond (think Hollywood stereotypes) girl, “Well, we are here because otherwise we would be like just floating in space ya know until we just died.”

Laughing, crying, and waiting on the light! peace
