God and the goldfish

In a cozy tank, in a sunny room, lives a fantail goldfish named Molly. Molly is a happy fish and likes to spend her days swimming and blowing bubbles. Sometimes we play “follow the finger” with her. We place a finger on the side of her tank, and she swims toward it right away. She will follow your finger as you move it up and down along the glass and keep at it until you stop.

One day, I noticed that Molly wasn’t swimming as happily as usual. It seemed as if something might be wrong.

I wanted to help Molly, so I sat down by her tank and started to pray. When I pray, I listen very carefully for what God is saying about how good He is, and how much He loves and cares for His creation.
