What is God?

Do you ever think about God and wonder what He is like? Do you and your friends sometimes talk about God? Do you ask each other questions because you want to know what God is?

Finding out about God and what He does is very important. For instance, God is Love and He loves us very much. He is always taking care of us. Because we are His children, nothing can hurt us or make us afraid. If we're having a hard time in class, God is there to help. If we're not feeling well, God is there to heal. If we're feeling scared, God is there keeping us safe. We can turn to God in prayer anytime, anyplace, about anything at all. He is with us all the time.

Sometimes we might hear things about God that aren't true. These may make us feel unhappy, even confused. This happened to me. A girl at school told me that God wasn't real. Another said that God is a big old man living up in the sky somewhere and that He makes us sick when we're naughty. This was scary. It didn't sound or feel right, but I didn't know what else to think. At that time I didn't really know much about God.
