God doesn’t make bullies

When I first went to school, there were two boys who were mean, sometimes three. I tried to play with them but they pushed me down. The teacher said they were bullies. She made them sit to the side and not play whenever they did mean things.

My Sunday School teacher is Miss Judy. She asked me, “What’s new at school?” I told her what had happened. She asked me how I was thinking about that. I said, “God didn’t make a bully. So they are not bullies.” I knew they were God’s children, and God’s children are loving. I also thought maybe they will be my friends … but they just don’t know it yet.

Miss Judy said those were some good ideas. Then she asked me why that is true. I said that God is Love and God is the only creator. He makes everything like Him. God is not a bully, so God didn’t make a bully. Miss Judy read from the Bible: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness” (Genesis 1:26).
