When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.

1 Corinthians 13:11

Universe in His handsAt the tender age of 6, I had obtained a concept of God that was essentially – God is everywhere, and yet he dwells within us. This was very hard for my little mind to grasp. One day while walking down the street, contemplating God, I came up with a solution to the confusion that allowed me to understand. I determined that we were actually inside God. I took a very literal physical notion of God, that he must have a body like mans, and that the earth must be floating around in his stomach or some such thing. I felt so wise; that I had figured out how God could be all around us, yet that we could have him dwell with us. At that tender age I was satisfied that I understood God. As I have grown older, I realize that such a concept of god is limited by the imagination of a human understanding of the world

What is your first recollection or understanding of God?
