Tea Bag Theology

Lord, help me to Fully Rely On You as I teach my boys day by day. May all that we learn and do be for your glory....

My little man was watching a praise dvd and when it finished he wanted to watch it again because he said that the songs were just so good. I explained that it made him feel good because God inhabits the praises of his people. (Psalm 22:3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.) He looked a bit confused and told me that God is everywhere.

I explained to him that although God is everywhere sometimes His presence is much more intense.

I demonstrated this with a teabag. (As much as I love my tea parties I do not actually worship the teabag you needn't be worried about it).

I held up the teabag and said imaging that this teabag is God. I dropped the teabag into a cup of boiling water. I told little man to sing and as he sang a worship song I stirred the water. I explained that as he sang it stirred God and got him to watch how the water in the cup changed to tea.

It was just like Gods presence growing more intense when we worship. Not only did we enjoy our lesson, we also enjoyed the cup of tea afterwards.

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
