Lesson Helps

“Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device” (Acts 17:29).

Even though this verse is a part of sermon on the nature of God, I have included it separately because it is so important that we share the message of the Fatherhood of God.

I got lost when I was about 6.  I was walking home from my friend's  house and it got dark and I got scared and hid in some bushes next to the Wilson School and cried.  Finally someone heard me. A man parted the bushes, looked down and me and said, "What's wrong, son?"

I told him I was lost.

"What's your name?" he asked.

"Teddy Gibbons."

"Are you A.H. Gibbons' son?" he said.

"Yes sir," I replied.

"Well, I know your father," he told me, "and I know where he lives.  Come with me and I will show you the way home."  And he did.

There are people all over your town and the world who are hiding and trembling in the bushes because they do not know the way home.  Some don't even know they have a home.  We must find them and say to them, "Are you Heavenly child?  I know him and I know where he lives.  You come with me and I will show you the way home."
