You’re allll good!

Things hadn’t been going too well for Toby. Normally, he was a well-behaved little boy, but he had just been separated from his friend at preschool because of the mischief they had gotten in. He also was not popular with his younger sister because he was not being so nice to her. To top it all, his mom and dad were going away for two weeks. However, Toby was happy because his grandparents, who he called Ouma and Oupa, were coming to stay at his house to look after him and his brother and sister. On his grandparents’ arrival, he announced with pride, “Ouma, I am allll bad!”

Now Ouma knew that this wasn’t true, because she knew that Toby was God’s loved child and that God made His children only good and loving. Ouma learned this in the Bible in the first chapter of Genesis, which tells us, “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good” (verse 31).
