Hi, kids of Trinity!

Summer is almost here and I love it. There’s more daylight; we’re spending more time outside; and on the weekends, my family is busy grilling out on the deck. I keep hoping someone will accidentally drop a hamburger, but so far that hasn’t happened. (Make mine with no onions, please!)

I have another awesome question from some of my Trinity friends. This one comes from Mr. Faust’s first and second grade Sunday School class. They ask: Who is God’s mom? Super question!

First, we have to remember that God never had a beginning and will never have an end. That’s pretty amazing, and might be kind of hard to understand. But, it’s true. Do you remember a few months ago when I asked you to look up Genesis 1:1? That’s the first verse of the first chapter of the first book of the whole Bible! It says, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” First there was nothing, and then God made the nothing into our world, the sky, the ocean, and all the animals and people.

God created everything, but nobody needed to create God. That’s because God has always been and always will be. Because God has always been around, God didn’t need a mom or dad the way people do. Because God loves us so much, he gave us our families.

Thanks for the question, kids! Do you have a question you’d like me to answer? You can contact me at http://bit.ly/askbiscuit.
