God knows everything! It’s something we talk about a lot at preschool. This year we especially have a lot of secrets going on in the class. We talk about how secrets make others feel sad but then I like to tell them, “You know what, I don’t know what you guys are talking about because I don’t know everything. But even though I can’t hear you, God knows what you are saying because he knows everything. He knows your hearts and the words that come out of your mouths. Just because you are whispering, doesn’t mean God can’t hear you. Remember God knows everything.”
That’s why when I saw this simple board book at the Children Desiring God conference, I had to get it! This little book by Carine Mackenzie will give children big truths about God in a simple way. It will reinforce things we are already trying to teach children. Here are the words on each page:
God knows everything. God knows the number of hairs on your head. Some have a lot…some have a little.
It’s in the bible: The hairs on your head are all numbered. Luke 12:7
God knows everything. God knows when a little bird falls to the ground.
It’s in the bible: Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one falls to the ground with God knowing. Mathew 10: 29
God knows everything. God knows how many stars are in the sky. He knows all their names.
It’s in the bible: He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Psalm 147: 4
God knows everything. Jesus knows everyone of his followers, just as a good shepherd knows his sheep.
It’s in the bible: I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me. John 10: 14
